This was a very engaging and applicable presentation. I enjoyed the dialogue and ideas shared by both the nurse manager and the medical director. I wish all nurse managers and medical directors had a relationship like this.

My last Medical Director existed in name only, he wasn't even paid. Therefore he did not function as a real Medical Director, leaving our department without a leader or champion when we needed representation in discussions with the CSuite folks. I wish I had the information in this session to guide my expectations and conversations to advocate for a "real" medical director /role. I hope others will watch this, the only down side to watching this is wishing we had had such a strong Managmenet and Director Team LOL!
