I’ve spent much of my time and energy over the past five years engaged in large scale undergraduate curriculum change efforts across two Canadian Universities. 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. What I have observed and experienced is that the need for transformational and relational leadership is everywhere. As an academic leader, what I can accomplish is dependent on the quality of the relationships that I foster with colleagues, staff and students. Honesty, transparency, and building on strengths are key aspects of a relational leadership style.
Doody's Review Service recently gave a 5 -star review to Management and Leadership for Nurse Administrators, Eighth Edition.

In order for nurse managers and executives to succeed as leaders in today's diverse and multi-generational workforce they need a combination of traditional management skills and a contemporary mindset. The recently published Management and Leadership for Nurse Administrators, Eighth Edition by Linda A. Roussel, Tricia Thomas, and James L. Harris is a comprehensive overview of key management and administrative concepts that are critical to leading healthcare organizations and ensuring patient safety and quality care.
Earlier this year when we released Leadership in Nursing Practice: Changing the Landscape of Health Care, Third Edition by Daniel Weberg, Kara Mangold, Tim Porter-O'Grady, and Kathy Malloch, we hoped that it would inspire thoughtful leadership. We're so happy to report it's doing just that. In a new review in the September 2018 issue of the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) Voice of Nursing Leadership, Cecelia Crawford, DNP, RN, featured the text in the LeaderRead section.

Welcome back guest blogger, Daniel Weberg, co-author of Leadership for Evidence-Based Innovation in Nursing and Health Professions for a new post on technology.
Although difficult, unraveling the care process across the healthcare system is necessary in order to identify specific areas where technology can enable care for the future and meet the triple aim. Healthcare systems that scrutinize this process can incorporate technology to decrease cost, improve patient experience, and improve overall population health. To affect change, leaders must be able to lead through ambiguity in order to see the patterns that signal change. Technology is a disruptor and it can motivate teams to create novel solutions to long held problems like those in the Triple Aim. The key for any leader is to understand how technology fits in. It’s seldom the only solution but rather a facilitator and catalyst to systemic change.
Please welcome guest blogger, Daniel Weberg, co-author of Leadership for Evidence-Based Innovation in Nursing and Health Professions for an informative post on technology.
Emerging technologies are rapidly changing how nursing care is delivered by enhancing the tools for patient assessment, enabling care anywhere, delivering instant information for evidence-based care interventions, and the improving efficiency and quality of care delivery. Remote monitoring, virtual wound care, and high definition video allow nurses to assess patients away from the bedside. Care is being delivered anywhere through the use of social networks and virtual wound care tools. Information is delivered instantly to care providers through mobile devices, data dashboards, and virtual learning systems. Finally, patient care has become more efficient through the linkage of Real Time Location Systems connecting patient, equipment, and nurses together for coordinated efforts. Technology is enabling care in ways that the profession may not be prepared to handle.
Our recently published Leadership for Evidence-Based Innovation in Nursing and Health Professions by Sandra Davidson, Daniel Weberg, Tim Porter-O'Grady, and Kathy Malloch is already garnering great reviews. According to Michalene A. King, PhD, RN, CNE, from Robert Morris University, writing for Doody's Review Service, it is,
"…the first book of its kind that I have seen. It covers important information about EBP and leadership [and] would be a great addition to the library of any healthcare leader."
“I look forward to working with the Foundation board and leadership to advance its mission, strengthen its philanthropic efforts and engage the larger health care community." said Porter-O'Grady. "This partnership will have a lasting impact on the interests of the nursing profession and the people it serves during a time of significant change.”
