The American Nurses Association (ANA) has selected Cynthia Clark, professor in the School of Nursing, as a co-chair for the Professional Issues Panel on Workplace Violence and Incivility. The goal of the panel is to develop a position statement on workplace violence and incivility and to provide evidence-based, detailed guidance for registered nurses and employers to promote healthy workplaces.
Two other co-chairs named to the committee include Deena Brecher, president of the Emergency Nurses Association, and Cole Edmonson, chief nursing officer at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, Dallas. The co-chairs will convene the activities of the steering committee and advisory committee later this month and will complete its mission and goals in approximately nine months.
