Keynote speakers Caring for Older People: How Can We Do the Right Things Right? Topic: Education and learning Releasing the intellectual capital of nursing: Nurses as knowledge workers, workforce development implications? Prof. Anne Marie Rafferty PhD Professor of Nursing Policy and Dean Emerita, Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery, King’s College London, United Kingdom Given the rising demands of the health care system in terms of the changing burden of disease and demographics the need for innovation and knowledge renewal is crucial to sustaining systems of care. Nurses need to be in the frontline not only of care delivery but service and system design to meet patient needs and continuously improve the patient experience. This requires a radical shift in how we educate, deploy, resource and design jobs for the largest workforce and resource in healthcare. www.rotterdam2016.eu 11
