Many of our 99NICU subscribers will have experienced first-hand the challenges of staffing the NICU, being aware of the short-term impact nurse staffing can have both on patient care and staff morale.
During this 2nd 99NICU Webinar, we will explore the wider impact of nurse staffing on patient outcomes and review what the evidence suggests are potential strategies for optimising staffing. Supported by the latest research from experts in their field, we encourage you to interact with our speakers with a live Q&A session.
We look forward to welcoming you to the 2nd 99NICU webinar!
Chiara Dall’Ora is a lecturer at the University Of Southampton. Her research mainly entails designing and performing large workforce studies using quantitative routinely collected data, focusing in particular on nurses’ shift patterns and staffing levels. Chiara qualified as a Registered Nurse in Italy and, after pursuing a MSc in Nursing and Midwifery Sciences, she completed her PhD within Health Sciences in 2017.
Eileen Lake has made a significant impact on nursing care practice through research on clinical work environments and nurse staffing levels in hospitals. She currently is a professor of nursing and sociology, the Jessie M. Scott Endowed Term Chair in Nursing and Health Policy, and associate director of the Center for Health Outcomes and Policy Research at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. Eileen Lake has developed a foundational measure/index of nursing care performance to demonstrate nursing’s impact on patient outcomes. This index provides scientific evidence that health care settings that capitalize on nurses’ education and skills achieve higher quality outcomes.
