Institute for Health Care Presents the Future of Nursing

The next WIHI will feature a discussion about the Future of Nursing :
"There may be a shortage of nurses in many parts of the US, but there’s no shortage of rethinking and redesign underway to strengthen the profession and to help nurses be more effective providers of quality patient care. Health care reform, along with a greater emphasis on primary care and prevention, are just some of the forces that point to a more prominent, satisfying, and critical role for nurses in the near future...."

Host Madge Kaplan, a long term health reporter, welcomes former U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, Donna Shalala; Susan Hassmiller PhD, RN FAAN, Director of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Institute of Nursing and IHI VP, Pat Rutherford, RN MS to discuss the current health reform and the future of nursing.

WIHI is a podcast "talk show" which is presented FREE of charge every other week. This program will be presented on October 22, 2009 from 2-3PM ET. Registration is required.
