APHON and its community provide a variety of events to help you keep pace with advancements in pediatric hematology/oncology nursing. You can view APHON events, local chapter events, Pediatric Chemotherapy/Biotherapy Provider courses, industry events, upcoming webinars, or the calendar of all events. The calendar name will indicate which events you are viewing.
This webinar will discuss ways that direct caregivers can serve as leaders. In today's environment, where everyone is challenged with increasing efficiency, providing high quality care, and keeping up with the constant changes, nurses are challenged to function at a higher level. Coming to work and just doing your job no longer seems to be enough.
Nurses are asked to participate in extra projects and committees, advance their education and/or obtain certification, be a team player, make sure patients and families are happy with their care, and maintain a positive attitude. Patients and families have high expectations and expect to be involved in their care. Recognizing how you, as a direct care nurse, can function as a leader may be enhanced by understanding the concept of trust, both in how you trust others, and in how patients and families form a trusting relationship with you and all caregivers.
