About the Webconference

Managers are the obvious choice for communicating important messages to frontline staff. But all too often, managers themselves don't fully understand the forces shaping their organization's strategic decisions. Acting on this insight, nursing leaders at MedStar Montgomery Medical Center created an engaging game of trade-offs to ensure managers—and frontline supervisors—can appreciate the financial implications of adverse patient events.

Learn how leaders at MedStar Montgomery Medical Center:

  • Developed an interactive nurse manager "doomsday" exercise to help managers understand the financial implications of avoidable hospital-acquired conditions
  • Translated the exercise for frontline supervisors to help them visualize the impact of budget cuts at the unit level
