Best Practice Solutions to Disruptive Behaviors in Healthcare

In hospitals across the globe, we are seeing an alarming increase in workplace stress and cruelty.

Worse yet, healthcare professionals are airing their frustrations in front of patients, which increases patient anxiety and interferes with their recovery. As healthcare leaders, we have an opportunity to change that.

In this training you will gain an understanding of the common ways disruptive behaviors show up in healthcare today and discover healthy workforce best practice solutions to these challenges.

Leading Evidence-Based Practice Fall 2023 Flyer

Although it is widely known that evidence-based practice (EBP) improves healthcare quality, reliability, and patient outcomes as well as reduces variations in care and costs, it is still not the standard of care delivered by practicing clinicians. Nurses and nurse leaders need a deep and operational knowledge of EBP to access and implement proven strategies, while also improving quality and engagement.

In collaboration with the Fuld Institute for Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) at The Ohio State University, ONL is excited to provide this highly-rated leadership development program for nurse leaders at all levels who want to learn more about leading evidence-based practice within their organization.

Winter Quarterly Meeting: Well-Being as Workforce Strategy
Friday, December 8th, 8:30 AM-2:45 PM at the Sheraton Framingham Hotel & Conference Center
For nurse leaders at every stage of their leadership journey

ONL 2023 Winter Quarterly Meeting

Nurses' well-being is mission-critical; it impacts not only individual performance, but also team dynamics, retention, and, by extension, patient outcomes. Enhancing nurses' well-being and cultivating cultures of well-being are therefore strategic imperatives for healthcare organizations. This program will delve into nurses' well-being as a lever for transformative change and what nurse leaders need to know to enhance their own personal well-being and that of their teams.

This event will also feature Member Poster Presentations. Stay tuned for our call for posters.

Our Winter Quarterly Meeting provides nursing teams a terrific opportunity for team building, shared learning, and collaboration. Consider attending with your team!

Join us to gain insights, inspiration, and actionable strategies and to connect and collaborate face-to-face with fellow nurse leaders! This event is always fun and festive, and it is such a joy to be together in person as a community. We hope you will take this opportunity to refill your cup, recenter with your values, connect with friends old and new, and celebrate with colleagues from across the region.
