Action Coalitions at Work

The Institute of Medicine’s Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health report was released on October 5, 2010. The year since has seen significant progress as nurses and other health leaders around the country work to advance its vision for change. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) recently announced 21 new state-based collaborations, called Action Coalitions, that will help advance the report’s recommendations. They join 15 Action Coalitions already in place, working in concert with the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action to improve health care for all Americans by strengthening nurse leadership and the nursing workforce.

The Campaign for Action has released videos highlighting the goals and the ongoing work of some of these Action Coalitions. This blog will feature all of them in coming days. Watch the first video, which features a leader from Virginia discussing the imperative for change in her state and what the state Action Coalition is doing to implement the Future of Nursing report recommendations.
