Pathbreaking CHOPR International Project Is About To Receive Funding from the European Union

Magnet4Europe is a randomized trial to redesign hospital workplaces to improve mental health, well-being, and retention of nurses and physicians and improve patient outcomes. The workplace intervention is guided by the principles of Magnet® Recognition and involves 1:1 twinning of 60 European demonstration hospitals each with an experienced Magnet Recognized hospital. The intervention hospitals are located in Belgium, England, Germany, Ireland, and Sweden. The purpose of the trial is to determine if redesign of hospital work environments, guided by the Magnet Journey, as detailed in the ANCC Magnet Manual, and in collaboration with an experienced Magnet hospital is feasible, effective, and sustainable in Europe in improving care quality and safety, patient satisfaction, and workforce outcomes.
