€4 Million Grant to Improve Mental Health and Well-being of Health Professionals and Patient Safety.
The largest initiative to improve hospital work environments to date is about to be implemented by way of an award from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Program.
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. A total of sixty hospitals from Belgium, England, Germany, Ireland, and Sweden will receive a full-blown redesign of their workplaces– supported by one to one twinning with a experienced Magnet recognized hospital and an annual learning collaborative.
