Nurses often feel constrained and frustrated by the bureaucratic and hierarchical systems that we work within. 20th Century organizations are designed to perpetuate the status quo and resist change. To a nurse with a great idea for improvement, it can be a challenge to navigate the system and move that from just an idea to implementation. This session will highlight key strategies and considerations for developing and championing innovation in healthcare. The focus will be on how to move from ideation to implementation (and beyond). Of course, disruptive innovation can’t flourish and grow in a toxic environment. Symptoms of toxic leadership styles and cultures will be discussed as well as actionable steps for how to address toxicity and move beyond it so that innovative ideas can be brought to life and transform our work and workplaces for the better.

Canadians trust nurses more than any other profession. So why aren’t we taking a more prominent leadership role in health care? This session will focus on discussing core nursing leadership competencies. You’ll learn how to use these skills in your day-to-day practice regardless of your position and role. Learn how to advance your leadership skills to influence decisions across the health system to make an impact.

Nurses are agents for change – whether it is at the bedside or in the boardroom. The places and the strategies for policy advocacy are varied but the purpose should always be the same – what is best for people, families and communities to achieve a healthy nation. There are many examples where Canadian nurses have been successful in directing change and influencing policy through involvement in professional associations. Join this session if you are interested in learning about policy advocacy – a need to do for a professional nurse.
