Compassionate Care: A Fundamental Imperative for Today's Changing Healthcare Environment

About this Event

Karen Daley, PhD, RN, FAAN, served from 2010 to 2014 as the president of the American Nurses Association, the nation’s largest nursing organization representing the interests of the nation’s 3.1 million registered nurses. She is a past president of the ANA Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Center for Nursing and has served on the boards of ANA, the American Nurses Credentialing Center, and the ANA-PAC.

Dr. Daley spent more than 25 years as a front-line caregiver and staff nurse at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) in Boston. She practiced for more than 22 years in the BWH emergency department until January of 1999 when she left due to a needlestick injury that resulted in her infection with both HIV and hepatitis C. Since that time, she has been actively engaged on state, national, and international levels as an advocate for use of safer needle devices in health care practice settings. Dr. Daley has traveled to more than 30 US states as well as Europe, Australia and Asia in her ongoing campaign to educate nurses, students, health care administrators and legislators on the importance of needlestick injury prevention. In recognition of the integral role she played in the passage of federal legislation to update the 1991 OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard, Dr. Daley was among those invited to the Oval Office to witness President Clinton sign the “Needlestick Safety Prevention Act” into law on November 6, 2000.

Dr. Daley's presentation titled Compassionate Care: A Fundamental Imperative for Today's Changing Healthcare Environment will focus on the importance of providing compassionate care in the midst of all the rapid changes that nurses experience.
