Webinar: Creation of a Nurse Manager Development Program to Increase Patient Safety 

Evidence indicates leadership skills of frontline nurse managers are key to creating magnetic work environments that promote positive outcomes. Yet, weaknesses in nurse managers' skills often result in environments that threaten patient safety. To translate evidence to practice, an INQRI team led by Linda Flynn and Joel Cantor has built upon their prior INQRI study to design an intervention to increase patient safety by enhancing the leadership and team building skills of nurse managers. They have partnered with award-winning journalist and patient safety advocate Suzanne Gordon and other interdisciplinary experts including a certified Crew Resource Management trainer to design and implement a nurse manager development program. Please join the team on Valentine's Day as they present their study results.
