Clinical Leadership Series Webinar

Demanding Disruption at the Bedside: 

How to innovate at the forefront of healthcare delivery.

The future of healthcare is a sea of opportunity, and as innovation makes its way to the bedside, nurses will only become more powerful.

However, nurses are already overwhelmed by the daily demands of delivering care. So how do you make the time for innovation? How do you build the business case? When is the right time to implement? How do you ensure adoption at the front line?

Join us for a 45min panel discussion where the country’s top thought leaders in clinical innovation answer these questions. They’ll also share their rigorous methods used to evaluate, select, implement, and scale the right clinical innovations, at the bedside and across the organization.

The panel discussion will dive into:

  • The promise of technology for the bedside
  • Can that promise be realized?
  • Methods and tools to make clinical innovation successful
  • Official launch of the Nursing Innovation Leader of the Year Award

If your healthcare organization is trying to drive innovation in 2020, this webinar is a must-attend.

Dr. Zayna Khayat

Zayna knew she wanted to tackle the big challenges in the world and after a stint in consulting with SECOR-KPMG and Boston Consulting Group, and has been focusing on solving as she says, “the wicked problems in healthcare” since then. She carried out this mission as a Professor at the Ivey School of Business’ International Center for Health Innovation,  followed by leading the health system innovation with MaRS Discovery District, and as the “Innovation Sherpa In-chief” at the REshape Health Innovation Centre at Radboud University Medical Centre in the Netherlands.

She consistently asks the tough questions and engages in ‘real talk’ that challenges the status quo. The experience of getting close to patients through her work with SE Health has convinced Zayna that we’re on the brink of a perfect cocktail of change and what is coming in healthcare is nothing like we’ve seen before.
