Learners are accessing and organizing information much differently than they did only a few years ago. Technology has changed the way students learn and educators teach. Furthermore, students are often working while enrolled in a rigorous program such as nursing or an allied health field.

It's the start of a new year and a new semester.

First as the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Nursing Programs at the University of Alberta, and currently as the Dean of Nursing at the University of Calgary.

Leadership for evidence-based innovation,
transformation in healthcare
Over the past 2 years I have traveled the country visiting universities, health systems, and attending conferences in search of those places where leaders are addressing the hard conversations. These conversations center around toxic work cultures, burnout, leadership issues, and failing systems. I have been searching for solutions that create high performing organizations and the tactics healthcare leaders can use to create them. In all these places I have been driving the discussions to encourage present day leaders to push past the current thinking which maintains and fosters the ‘status quo’.
