2012 Pre-Summit &

The 2012 event provided the opportunity for participants to gain involvement in the nursing profession, understand the importance of leadership and education, discuss critical research that supports the work of the Teamwork Summit and the initiatives pursued by the Missouri Action Coalition, and for friends of nursing to gain insights into the landscape of the nursing profession.
On June 6th the Missouri Nurses Association & the Missouri Nurses Foundation had the distinct pleasure to have Dr. Linda Aiken, FAAN, RN, and Dr. Nancy Dunton, FAAN sharing with us their research on nursing education and nursing practice. This event was a wonderful opportunity to show the scientific relationship between nursing care and patient outcomes.
On June 7th the Missouri Action Coalition comprised of the Missouri Nurses Association, Missouri League for Nursing, and the Missouri Health Advocacy Alliance partnered with the Missouri Nurses Foundation to provide a forum to discuss continued efforts and initiatives to implement the recommendations of the IOM Report.
The Missouri Action Coalition seeks to engage all health professions, consumer leaders, policy-makers, prominent officials and groups representing government, business, academia, licensing bodies, philanthropic organizations, and consumer advocacy groups in pursuing their vision of “A Healthy Missouri through Nursing Leadership and Service”.
