Visionary Keynote: Nursing Innovators: A Driving Force in Health Care Reform

Thursday, August 12 at 10:55 AM - 11:20 AM PDT

Nurses represent more than 50% of the health care workforce. They are the Macgyer’s of the supply closet, focused on creating great patient experiences through solving problems and challenging the status quo. Nurses' proximity to patients and healthcare challenges is an invaluable advantage for generating solutions. In this fireside chat, innovation leaders will share the impact of nursing innovation and entrepreneurship, as well as the disruptive thinking, innovation methodology and systems and networks available to support nurses to continuously improve patient care and outcomes.
