Nurses to have a say in the boardroom

  • Comment
The King’s Fund and the Burdett Trust for Nursing have teamed up to launch a leadership programme for nurses aimed at bringing the bedside to the boardroom.

The initiative, launched last Wednesday (3 November) aims to ensure that senior nurses’ expertise in patient care can influence executives boards’ decisions.

Sue Norman, Burdett Trustee lead for the project, said: ‘Good caring is good business. Nursing has often recoiled from talking about patient care and business in the same breath but that's changing.

‘The aim of this initiative is to place performance management of patient care firmly within the business considerations of boards - commissioners and providers alike.’

The project aims to increase understanding of the clinical impact of budgetary decisions and improve patient care.
