Nursing foresight is the ability to foresee and anticipate what will happen or be needed in the future in light of emergent health care trends that have consequences for population and planetary health, as well as the nursing professions purpose, definition, professional scope, and standards of practice.
The Nursing Foresight Summit brought together leaders of the University of Minnesota School of Nursing and the Katharine J. Densford International Center for Nursing Leadership with invited experts and thought leaders to explore the expanded role of the Densford Center in supporting a community-based model of health transformation through the application of foresight methods and thinking. Leadership at the University of Minnesota School of Nursing and the Densford Center are committed to the development of foresight leadership, and innovation that drives and activates futures thinking, planning and action skill sets of nurses and health professionals to advance the transformation and development of a 21st century health care learning system.
The purpose of the Summit was to create a Nursing Foresight Initiative that activates leadership capacity, foresight thinking and the wisdom of nurses and other health professionals’ committed to innovation and transformation that advances healthy communities and planetary health.
