Panel description: Nursing is poised to be a key component in the United States’ efforts to transform its health care system for seamless, affordable, quality care. One potential roadmap to change is the Campaign for Action, a guide to implement recommendations of the Institute of Medicine’s landmark report “Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health.” The expert panelists will explain how the future of nursing will likely make significant changes in health care, and what journalists need to know to cover the story.
