The Michigan Health Council is holding two conferences on quality, teamwork, and interprofessional collaboration this September.
These two conferences will present some great information on the future of health care delivery, focusing on interprofessional collaboration’s impact on quality and safety. The 2014 Michigan Nursing Summit will be held on September 12, in Lansing Michigan. With keynote talks from Karima Velji, PhD, RN and Mary Dolansky, PhD, RN about the importance of interprofessional collaboration and quality and safety, the Summit will offer important, evidence-based research and insights that are critical for nursing’s role in the transformation of health care.
Additionally, Dianne Conrad, DNP, Kathy Moran, DNP, and Rosanne Burson, DNP will be giving a presentation on the emerging role the Doctorate of Nursing Practice will play in clinical transformation and growing the nursing profession. Attendees will also hear from Pat Posa, MSA, RN, about translating evidence into practice in the nurse-led effort to eliminate Central Line Associated Blood Stream Infections (CLABSI) as part of the Keystone Initiative. All of the details on the speakers is available here.
Northern Michigan Interprofessional Conference
The third edition of the Northern Michigan Interprofessional Conference will be held on September 26-27 at Treetops Resort in Gaylord, Michigan, and will focus on transforming care through teamwork.
This year’s conference brings together a diverse group of educators, practitioners and researchers. A team-based approach to care provides a wealth of benefits for patients and practice, and is a central piece to new health care reform measures and reimbursement models. Attendees of this conference will learn to apply their current knowledge, and acquire insight from peers and experts in collaborative learning and care, to lay the blueprint for a new, more coordinated approach to providing health care services and education. Be sure to take advantage of the learning opportunities and insight at this year’s conference. For more information, schedule, and registration details, visit the Education to Practice website.
