Design Thinking for Health

Design Thinking for Health

Nurses are natural innovators, and nurse innovators are more crucial now than ever before. Nurses are on the front lines of health care, and this affords them enormous opportunities to use innovation to improve health and well-being, design and create new approaches to care, and communicate health information to the community at-large. That’s why Penn Nursing and the Rita and Alex Hillman Foundation have partnered to create a free online platform that brings together the tools, resources, and inspiration nurses need to generate innovative solutions that impact health and healthcare in a rigorous and systematic way. The new open source curriculum may be used or adapted by any nurse or nursing program to support nursing-driven innovation.
