Creation of a Nurse Manager Development Program to Increase Patient Safety

Evidence indicates leadership skills of frontline nurse managers are key to creating magnetic work environments that promote positive outcomes. Yet, weaknesses in nurse managers' skills often result in environments that threaten patient safety. To translate evidence to practice, this team has built upon their prior INQRI study to design an intervention to increase patient safety by enhancing the leadership and team building skills of nurse managers. They have partnered with award-winning journalist and patient safety advocate Suzanne Gordon and other interdisciplinary experts including a certified Crew Resource Management trainer to design and implement a nurse manager development program. This interdisciplinary team is led by Linda Flynn, PhD and Joel Cantor, ScD.
