This assessment provides you with an opportunity to find evidence in the academic literature of research that reports on the achievement of quality through effective nursing leadership.
Refer to the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards and identify one standard that interests you.
Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care. (2021). National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards (2nd. ed.- v 2). https://www.safetyandquality.gov.au/standards/nsqhs-standards

Your task then is to explore the academic literature to find three journal articles (peer reviewed five years old) that report on how nursing leadership can be used to achieve quality in relation to the standard/ criterion/ action/ clinical focus of the standard (e.g. medication safety, blood management). From your literature collection, develop an integrated response to the question:
What nursing leadership strategies contribute to the achievement of this standard?
1. Introduction (1 minute)
2. Explain your chosen Standard (3 minutes)
3. Report on nursing leadership strategies (5 minutes)
4. Conclusion (1 minute)
5. Reference list

-Time allocations are approximate.
-A video presentation will be made available during week one to support your completion of this task.
-The length of the presentation must be close to the time specified. If the length is outside +/- 10 there will be a reduction of 10% of the total mark available for the assessment.
