54H - Ensuring Clinical Collaboration and Equality

Tuesday, March 21

2:00–3:00 p.m.

In late 2019, LifePoint Health established a physician-nurse dyad with its CMO and CNO, creating a structure in which these two leaders work as equal partners to improve quality, patient safety and operations. These leaders will describe how their partnership began and has evolved and discuss how it has driven efforts to better align nurses, physicians and clinical staff to create a more unified workforce, remove historic organizational silos, and enhance collaboration and clinical coordination. They also will outline how their collaboration helped to establish partnerships and has been replicated in diverse communities across the nation.

Learning Objectives

  • Explore how to create greater physician/nurse collaboration across clinical settings.
  • Examine the concept of the physician/nurse dyad and distill the key components of establishing a successful physician/nurse dyad model in any setting.
