Rendell to Speak at Today's Forum on the Future of Nursing

Philadelphia Forum to Highlight Nurses in Community Health, Public Health, Primary Care, and Long-Term Care

Today, from 12:30-5:35 p.m. ET, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Initiative on the Future of Nursing at the Institute of Medicine will hold the second national forum to discuss how to improve the delivery of medical treatment for Americans in community health, public health, primary care, and long-term care settings. Gov. Ed Rendell of Pennsylvania will address the forum regarding his work on the Prescription for Pennsylvania. The forum will look at opportunities in which nurses—as frontline providers of care—can play a role in ensuring patients in all settings receive the best possible care.
