"Partnership" is one of the watchwords of the day. We are all learning about new models for working together, from Dyads to Team Care, for the good of both patients and caregivers. Nurse leaders and our colleagues realize that we will only be successful if we work both within and outside our "silos." The Fall 2018 edition of NAQ, guest edited by Dr. Roy Simpson and Dr. Linda Burnes-Bolton, addresses the collaboration needed by nurse leaders from Practice and Academia. Learnings from executives and educators who have consciously set out to improve their alliances provide insights for all of us, on our journey to better teamwork. Please enjoy the collection that these two well-known nurse trailblazers have selected for NAQ 42:4—Systems Partnerships.
Thanks for Choosing to Lead,
Kathleen Sanford, DBA, RN, FACHE, FAAN
