Communicate with Intent:
Ignite Organizational Excellence through Mindful Communication

Mary B. Chauvin
The best healthcare leaders understand that they set an example within their organizations. They hone their communication skills and lead mindfully. Great leaders establish the tone, expectations, and direction, ensuring excellence and organizational success. In this presentation, participants will gain essential insights, knowledge, and skills required to successfully communicate with intent and move forward in today’s fast-paced, exciting, and ever-changing healthcare realm.
Leadership: Inspiring Staff to Work with You and For You
Laurel Kitto, MSN, RNC-NIC
Inspiring others to be engaged in their work is as important as the work itself. Whether you lead a small unit, or a mega unit, conveying value is often a direct link to engagement. Let’s have a conversation about the leader in all of us.

Evidence-Based Practice for Leaders: Making it a Reality
Bernadette Melnyk, PhD, RN, CPNP/PMHNP, FAANP, FNAP, FAAN
The barriers to implementing evidence-based practice in clinical settings are well-documented in the literature. While it is associated with better patient outcomes and a higher quality of care, the realities of integrating evidence-based practice into daily clinical practice remain highly variable and inconsistent. Care that is steeped in tradition has resulted in a substantial chasm between research and bedside practice. Dr. Melnyk provides leaders with real insights and actions that are aimed at decreasing that gap and making evidence-based practice more of a reality in any nursing unit.
