Professionalism in nursing. We all talk about it, but are we actually doing it? Join Barb Fry in the conversation as she applies her extensive experience and skill in health care to address the connection between professionalism in nursing and benefits to safe, quality client/ patient/resident outcomes. Key to this is the knowledge, skill and ability that nurses in the current health care system need to possess and exercise in order to maximize their contribution to transform patient/family centered care delivery.

Participants will:

  • Understand professional practice as a personal responsibility
  • Describe the connection between professional practice and patient/family centered care
  • Identify strategies for their professional contribution to safe, quality care outcomes
  • Identify a measure that links professional practice with safe, quality care
