VIDEO: Advancing the IOM Recommendations and Building a Culture of Health

For seven years nurses have advanced the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) recommendations on the future of nursing and strengthened the nursing field. In this video message for Action Coalitions, Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action Director Susan B. Hassmiller, PhD, RN, FAAN, thanks nurses for all they have accomplished and stresses that in order to build a Culture of Health, nurses must continue their work to bring the IOM recommendations to fruition. She also discusses how efforts to build a Culture of Health will require greater collaboration from diverse stakeholders and that Action Coalitions and their partners must take all the factors that impact health, ranging from city and urban design to housing and education, into account to achieve the maximum impact.
