Longwoods Breakfast Series:
Briefings from and for Healthcare Leaders

Each Longwoods Breakfast Series is a year of healthcare learning briefings. Each season we provide monthly educational sessions that provide invited leaders in healthcare the opportunity to share new ideas, policies and/or best practices with colleagues. Our speakers are C-level executives, notable researchers, cabinet ministers, deputies, or leaders from the academic community. Currently these online briefings are 45 minutes long, concise and to the point. A full web version may be made available on Longwoods.com after the live presentation.

The live sessions are freely available to HealthcareBoard members. Please click here to learn more about becoming a member.

Tuesday, December 12, 2023 - Toronto, ON

9AM-10AM (Networking Breakfast starts at 8:30)

Leigh Chapman, Chief Nursing Officer, Health Canada, Tim Guest, CEO, Canadian Nurses Association and Carly Weeks, Health Reporter, The Globe and Mail

Topic: "You Can’t Recruit Your Way Out of a Crisis”: Why Retention is Critical to Today’s Health Workforce Challenges in the Context of a Global Nursing Shortage

Join us for a conversation with the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) CEO, Tim Guest, and Canada’s Chief Nursing Officer (CNO), Leigh Chapman focusing on strategies to address today’s health workforce challenges in the context of a global nursing shortage. This event titled “You can’t recruit your way out of a crisis” follows the International Council of Nurses (ICN) Congress, co-hosted by the CNA in Montreal this past July, where the issue of the global nursing shortage was brought to the forefront as one of the most prominent issues in today’s global health landscape.

In this talk, these nurse leaders will cover current issues, and strategic solutions for the future of nursing. With a focus on how we got here, and where we’re going, the discussion topics will include retention, ethical recruitment, and improving work environments for nurses. The speakers will also highlight their hopes for the future of nursing and Canada’s publicly funded healthcare system.
