The Nurse’s Take: How to Improve Hospital Supply Chain Management
Panel: How hospital and supply chain leaders can create a more nurse-centric supply chain

Tuesday, May 4, 2021 
1 - 2 p.m. Eastern; noon - 1 p.m. Central; 10 - 11 a.m. Pacific  

While hospital leaders and supply chain leaders have taken steps to improve supply chain management, particularly since the COVID-19 pandemic began, many have overlooked a critical factor when it comes to identifying and initiating supply chain improvements: nurses.   

As we will explore during this panel discussion with frontline nurses and nurse leaders, hospital success is dependent upon how clinical staff, especially nurses, interact with the supply chain. A supply chain management approach that isn’t nurse-centric adversely affects patient care, decreases efficiency and fails to achieve other, inherent benefits of supply chain-enhancing technology. Nurses’ insight is critical, and in fact foundational, to any supply chain improvement. If hospital leaders and supply chain leaders don’t achieve nurse buy-in, even the most promising improvement initiatives and technology solutions will fall short.  

In addition to expert voices from the field, this webinar will feature insights from a recent hospital supply chain management survey of 100 hospital nurses. 

Attendees Will Learn How to:   

  • Apply lessons learned from a survey of 100 nurses to create a more nurse-centric supply chain.   
  • Achieve nurse buy-in for supply chain improvement initiatives. 
  • Incorporate supply chain improvements that complement established workflows and ensure nurses have the supplies needed to provide safe patient care.  
  • Enhance supply chain accuracy and streamline supply documentation.
