UI Health Care—a four time Magnet® designated hospital for excellence in nursing care—is one of more than 60 hospitals participating in Magnet4Europe: the U.S. Clinician Well-being Study and an international twinning hospital experience.
The intent is to promote clinician wellbeing by studying U.S. Magnet hospitals and outcomes, while partnering with European hospitals to share experiences and help them become Magnet prepared.
This project is led by Dr. Linda Aiken of the Center for Outcomes and Policy Research, University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, who has conducted decades of research demonstrating healthy work environments for clinicians are associated with positive patient outcomes.
