Appreciation, Influence and Control (AIC)
Guests: William E Smith, Cynthia Hornberger, and Dan Pesut
In 2008, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) began a study of the future of nursing and proposed an action-oriented blueprint for advancing the work of the profession. The four key messages were: Nurses should practice to the full extent of their education and training; an improved nursing education system would promote seamless academic progression; nurses should be full partners with physicians and other health professionals in redesigning health care; and better data collection and information infrastructure are needed to advance these goals.
October's call will feature the complexity-informed processes Appreciation, Influence and Control (AIC) with William E. Smith, author and principle of Organizing for Development and Cynthia Hornberger, professor at Washburn University. It will review the progress with AIC at previous On The Edge conferences, It will further Liana’s Future of Nursing presentation by accepting her challenge to provide a leadership and organizing framework to encompass future developments. It will also use the Cultural Appreciation of Nursing produced from data collected at the 2010 Conference to asses Nursing’s readiness to move forward with these ideas. The PowerPoint is design to bring those of you not directly involved up to speed both with AIC, the progress through the Conferences, and the Cultural Appreciation.
