Breakout Session Themes



Impact of Nursing on Healthcare

How does nursing shape and alter healthcare? How do nurses influence policies and procedures throughout the Medical Center? What we learn influence the care bedside nurses provide. Let's take a look at how UCSF nursing research, evidence, and quality affect healthcare.

Resiliency During the Pandemic

COVID-19 deeply impacted UCSF nurses and the care nurses provided. What makes our nurses resilient? How will research and evidence during this time impact the way nurses provide care in the future? Have a discussion on the impacts COVID-19 had on nursing and what makes UCSF nurses unique.
