Talking Our Walk: RN Patient Advocacy in the Public Sphere
A Medicare for All Leadership Development Workshop (4 Contact Hours)
Workshop Times: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Nurses are on the frontlines of our acute healthcare crisis. They see the impact of our current health care system—driven by the private insurance industry, for-profit hospital systems, and big pharma—on their patients every single day. Because nurses work directly with human beings when they are in their most vulnerable, least dignified of states, nurses have a special vantage point into how to fix our broken health care system. This workshop develops, deepens, and broadens this vantage point by preparing nurses to (1) connect their experience at the bedside to the dire need for a more humane health care system based on the needs of their patients and not on private pain and profit; and (2) expand their patient advocacy beyond the bedside and into the public sphere.
