Cover image for lecture: Are You a Great Nurse Manager?

Lecture Overview

How often do you wonder if you’re doing a good job and what do you mean when you ask yourself this? Are you an effective manager or are you a great leader? Are you able to mentally distinguish between internal gauges of impact? In this presentation, Jane Stanfield presents how clarity can be found by asking yourself the right questions.

Jane Stanfield is a health service improvement coach. She comes with 30 years’ experience in healthcare, half as a clinician and half in health administration, support and coaching. Having had a brush with burnout herself and several close family members receiving healthcare, her focus is on bringing compassion back to healthcare for all involved. Her current use of neuroscience and mindfulness at work enables healthcare providers to work with their own mind, emotions and behaviour to influence their culture in a way that will energise and motivate them as they manage the safety and reliability of their care and its focus on the patient while caring for themselves. Jane is currently coaching several nurse leaders and runs workshops on leadership, shaping cultures, wellbeing, and communication and patient safety (CAPS). Her most recent professional development personally is in LEAN thinking - reducing waste and improving flow in healthcare…because waste is disrespectful to people! See Educator Profile

Excellent helpful information, also personally challenging to bring joy to the workplace regardless of the mood of the environment at the time.
