Moving nursing innovation to prime time through the use of creative partnerships.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Nurses are well-positioned to solve many problems in healthcare through engagement in innovation. Support from healthcare organizations to facilitate creative partnerships may accelerate nurses' ability to innovate and improve job satisfaction. The value of creative partnerships is rooted in the diversity of experiences and skillsets of each project team member. While nurses may be content experts and key stakeholders, they often lack experience with project management, information technology, product development, and other important skills. We describe the use of co-creation approaches in creative partnerships with diverse stakeholders to enhance the ability of nurse-led project teams to build valuable and sustainable products or services.
