SYNOVA 24th Annual NICU Leadership Forum

SEPTEMBER 15-18, 2020
Naples Grande | Naples, FL

Fostering a Healthy Work Environment through Synergy, Inclusion and Ethical Leadership

It has never been more crucial for leaders to cultivate a healthy work environment. Staff and families bring outside stressors into the NICU, incivility among staff is on the rise, and tension among racial, socio-economic and generational groups is palpable in many hospitals. There is opportunity to improve self-awareness, decrease stress, and encourage empathy for leaders, staff, and families.

Nurse leaders must champion inclusiveness, display caring, and demonstrate ethical leadership. In order to do this, leaders and their staff must understand their internal biases, communicate openly, and understand how their values impact their leadership style. Research has shown that a positive work environment may improve the quality and safety of patient care, reduce staff turnover, and improve patient satisfaction.

At the 2020 NICU Leadership Forum, we will explore these topics and your COVID-19 experiences to ensure that today’s NICU nurse leaders recognize the complexities of healthcare today, how it impacts those in their Unit and what they can do to foster a healthy work environment.

At the 2020 NICU Leadership Forum, you can expect:

· Leadership experts who map out clear strategies for success

· Numerous opportunities to network, meet and exchange ideas

· Small group time to share best practices and challenges

· Access to innovative ideas, products and services

· Therapeutic environment at a 5-star resort
