Emerging From the Perfect Storm: Breaking Nursing’s Unsustainable Cycles

22nd September 2022, America 12:00 - 13:30 EST

How can you overcome current nursing challenges – like staff shortages, burnout and insufficient training – to improve the quality of your workforce, patientcare and organization?

Today’s healthcare organizations are faced with mounting nursing challenges – from staff shortages to long working hours. Applying bandages, like relying on third party agencies or reminding workers to take a break, might offer a temporarily fix but they’re unsustainable. The high turnover of staff and accelerating nursing shortage are both indicative of this. But more than that, they’re widening the existing experience-complexity gap and creating a dire cycle that’s negatively impacting nurses and patient care.

Amid increased levels of stress, fatigue and burnout, many health care workers are leaving - or are considering leaving - their jobs. In fact, in a recent survey by the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses, 92% of respondents said the pandemic had “depleted nurses at their hospitals and cut careers short”. And according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there will likely be a shortage of more than one million registered nurses by the end of the year.

What your workforce needs is the right support to strengthen their competence, confidence and overall job satisfaction to provide quality patientcare.

Join thought-leaders from global leader in information and analytics Elsevier, and other like-minded industry peers, in this exclusive virtual roundtable to discuss and learn how you can overcome today’s top nursing challenges and return to progress.
