TIGER releases new leadership collaborative report! Recommendations for the Innovative Nurse Leader

The TIGER Initiative Foundation has released a new leadership collaborative report The Leadership Imperative: TIGER’s Recommendations for Integrating Technology to Transform Practice and Education (2014).This new TIGER report resulted from the continued recognition of how critical leadership is to fulfill the TIGER vision and mission and to lead the way by providing transformational leadership that drives and executes the transformation of healthcare. The report addresses the need to focus on both practice and technology as well as provides valuable information, tools and resources for leaders to access and utilize as they integrate technology into practice and education. The forward was written by Angela Barron McBride, PhD, RN, FAAN who states, “The question for every nurse and every hospital board is how you go about promoting transformational change in which the emphasis is not on transitory, isolated performance improvements by individuals, but on sustained, assimilated, comprehensive change of the whole (Lukas et al., 2007) and this report offers one answer: nurse leaders knowledgeable about how information technology can help redesign practices so that they are standardized, evidence-based and clinically integrated, and reinforce the values of a caring culture.”.
