We’ve got another excellent episode of Mastering Nursing just for you! This week, Nurse Keith and his guest cover a subject that’s important for the future of the field… innovation in nursing and healthcare. Tim Raderstorf is the Chief Innovation Officer at The Ohio State University College of Nursing, and had so much to share about it. As the first nurse to hold this academic title in the United States, he takes great pride in educating the nation on the role of the nurse as an innovator and entrepreneur.
In 2017, he founded The Innovation Studio, a makerspace/incubator that provides interprofessional healthcare teams with the tools and mentorship needed to turn ideas into actions. Outside of Ohio State, Tim is the founder of Quality Health Communications, a digital Clinical Decision Support System that communicates real-time patient quality and safety metrics to the healthcare team. He is also the co-author of Evidence-Based Leadership, Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Nursing and Healthcare: A Practical Guide for Success, which will be published by Springer Publishing Company in 2019.
