Nurses Can Help Change Healthcare Delivery

Written by LeAnn Thieman, CSP, March 13th, 2010

nurseThe Robert Wood Johnson (RWJ) Foundation and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) are working together on  the “Initiative on the Future of Nursing” study committee. Experts are hosting public forums across the country to gather information, particularly from nurses, on sharing innovative models of nursing care.

The ultimate goal of the 2-year joint RWFJ/IOM effort is to create a “blueprint for action” – a transformational report on the future of nursing.

“For healthcare reform to succeed, and for patients to receive better care at a cost we can afford, we must change the way healthcare is delivered. And nursing is at the heart of patient care.”

Nurses’ involvement in this process will increase nurse retention. Not only will it engage them, but in the end they will contribute to strategies to retain the tired over-worked workforce.
