A Model for Clinical Partnering: How Nurse and Physician Executives Use Synergy as Strategy

The American Hospital Association (AHA) and its affiliates the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE), now the American Organization for Nursing Leadership (AONL), and AHA Physician Alliance joined with the American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL) to bring together chief medical and nursing officers to identify effective approaches for collaborative executive leadership in complex systems; develop a shared understanding and common language for clinical leadership and decision-making to be used by other executives; share partnering challenges and peer-to-peer approaches to those challenges; and identify the resources needed to support ongoing efforts for collaborative leadership and executive development.
