Magnet4Europe Initiative

The grant will support the international partnership of some of the world’s leading Universities led by KU Leuven and the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing’s Center for Health Outcomes and Policy Research. MORE

Magnet4Europe will implement an evidence-based intervention based on the successful Magnet Recognition Program ®, a voluntary hospital designation for nursing care excellence by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Over sixty hospitals from Belgium, England, Germany, Ireland, Sweden, and Norway will receive a full-blown redesign of their workplaces– supported by one to one twinning with an experienced Magnet recognized hospital and an annual learning collaborative.”

RESOURCES FOR STUDY PARTNERS

An information kit was distributed including a PowerPoint presentation that can be tailored to use in your own setting to brief your colleagues. Helpful tools were discussed by the Magnet team to guide the intervention including a revised Gap Analysis tool that is now scored for evaluating progress over time. And a briefing took place about the concurrent U.S. Study of Clinician Wellbeing and Patient Outcomes.
