The Institute of Medicine report, The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health, outlined the blueprint for a transformed health care delivery system, with nurses serving as full partners. Our team of experts from nursing, research, and academia understand that sustainable change is driven by sound and compelling data. We will continue to identify, generate, synthesize and disseminate the evidence critical to engaging and influencing campaign partners.
