How Nurses Are Using Design to Create an Innovation Infrastructure in Healthcare

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

As the interest in, and need for, healthcare innovation increases, we must prepare nurses with the skills, knowledge, and experiences necessary to lead in these areas. In this talk we will discuss how we are infusing design concepts and methodologies into our nursing curriculum, both for traditional learning (classroom) and active-learning (accelerators). We will then discuss how that education is being translated for use in clinical practice that resonates with and across multiple stakeholders. Education and clinical case studies will be described.
