The 2020 CNO Perspective

Nurses Have Stepped Up. Now It’s Time to Support Them

3-Point Strategy to Help Strengthen Nurses’ Resiliency

Around the world, we’re sorting through the lessons to be learned from the COVID-19 crisis. Now is the time to make plans for supporting healthcare team members who are trauma survivors and will experience PTSD for a while to come.

My 2020 CNO Perspective looks at the foundation cognitive science provides for devising a strategy to build nurses’ resiliency. It outlines a three-point strategy that includes:

  • Lightening clinicians’ cognitive load by addressing the strategic delta between documentation and communication
  • Relieving the burden of adapting to multiple preferences and systems by giving clinicians control over how they communicate
  • Providing clinicians with clear, contextual, just-in-time information – using software to enhance workflow, not distract from it

This is a report about looking forward as we care for those who have cared so tirelessly for patients and families.
