  • Description
    "The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Initiative on the Future of Nursing, at the IOM, seeks to transform nursing as part of larger efforts to reform the health care system. As part of this Initiative, three forums were held to explore challenges and opportunities in nursing. The first forum, on October 19, 2009, focused on quality and safety, technology, and interdisciplinary collaboration in acute care; and speakers offered new strategies to allow nurses to provide higher-quality care. The IOM will use the perspectives and ideas summarized in this document to inform a final report on the future of nursing, expected to release in fall 2010." (excerpt from website)
