Healthcare today is changing at an incredibly rapid pace and the stakes have never been higher. In order to weather this storm and come out on top, the industry needs to look at innovations, leaders, patient experiences and all around past successes and failures. This is what The Report Room is all about. Brian Weirich is himself a skilled and experienced nurse leader who wants to help those in the nursing field up their game in terms of patient care and experience. His passion is to see the medical profession and nurses, in particular, become more skilled in not only the technical aspects of their profession but also in the softer skills such as compassion, empathy, communication, and more. If you are a healthcare professional, Brian wants to help you keep your heart aligned with the reason you got into healthcare in the first place - to help people who are suffering the worst experiences of their lives.
