Pont du Gard Forum, "Let's Get Real" - Choosing Silence, Choosing Voice

Abstract

This column presents a dialogue among nurse leaders and others who participated in discussions about nursing and human care. The hope of the authors is to enhance understanding about the knowledge, processes, and structures that impact nursing worklife and that help and hinder nurses in their work to create compassionate relationships that enhance health and quality of life. The dialogues represent opportunities to seek the truths that will help us understand the realities of nursing - in large organizations and perhaps beyond. We believe that understanding can lead to changes that may restore and enhance human care and compassionate relationships among all nurses who share in the life-enhancing dialogues presented in the columns.
