Audio Session and Presentation Slides from Nursing Management Congress 2017

Sad but true, but there are no guarantees for the public that healthcare will work for people when they need it. Presuming that ethics will take care of itself because we're good people who want to help others just doesn't work. True leaders influence others to realize valued goals. In this session, a healthcare ethicist will help you explore nursing's role in ensuring quality care that's truly person-centered. We'll specifically address the importance of nurse managers recognizing moral distress and promoting moral resilience.

Learning Objectives/Outcomes
