Courage To Lead
Nursing: A Leading Force for Change

Conference - March 7 - 8, 2013
Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

Radisson Hotel

Continuing Education and Development for Nurses is pleased to be working with a dynamic planning committee on behalf of the Saskatchewan Chief Nursing Officer and the Provincial Nursing Council, to host the second annual Courage to Lead Nursing Leadership Conference at the Radisson Hotel in Saskatoon.

This action-oriented program will appeal to LPNs, RPNs and RNs in all roles and at every level of experience. Nursing students are encouraged to attend. The conference will focus on leading change and impacts on the public, practitioner and system outcomes.

The first very well attended conference held in March of 2012 began the process of introducing the LEADS Framework for leadership to nurses in our great province. The 2012 conference theme “Courage to Lead - Transforming Health Care” highlighted the LEADS framework domain of ‘Lead Self’.

This second conference will align with the goal of furthering the introduction of the LEADS Framework to nurses in the province by focusing on the framework domain of ‘Engage Others’ and exploring the connection of this domain to the domains of ‘Lead Self’, ‘Develop Coalitions’ and ‘Achieve Results’. This will all be connected to provincial LEAN initiatives and the important work of the CNA National Expert Commission.
