Ways nursing can advance health care improvements: IOM to hold briefing on Oct. 5
Date:9/16/2010

Since its inception in July 2009, the Committee on the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Initiative on the Future of Nursing, at the Institute of Medicine has worked to develop a blueprint for using nurse-led models of innovation to improve the health care system.

The committee, led by former Health and Human Services Secretary and University of Miami President Donna E. Shalala and Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles Linda Burnes Bolton, organized a number of technical workshops and public forums to discuss key issues that serve as the basis for its recommendations, which will be presented at a public briefing. These address a range of system changes, including innovative ways to improve health care quality and address the health care work force shortage that continues to threaten the availability and quality of care in the United States.

WHAT: A public briefing to discuss recommendations in the new report by the IOM committee on the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Initiative on the Future of Nursing, at the Institute of Medicine. The recommendations will serve as the blueprint for expanding access, improving quality, and reducing cost in the American health care system.
