Planting Seeds of Innovation

Creating the Future of Health with Foresight and Innovation

Nurses are consumers, providers and designers of emerging health care technologies. The purpose of this conference is to increase awareness, understanding, insight and actions nurses can take to deepen their knowledge, skills, and abilities related to innovation and transformation of health care.

The Planting Seeds of Innovation Conference is presented by the Nursing Collaboratory, a joint project of the University of Minnesota School of Nursing, Fairview Health Services and M Health, and provides nurses with tools and resources they need to bring their innovative ideas to reality. Whether a product, service or process, the conference provides nurses with a blueprint of how to think creatively, identify a target market, develop a value proposition, and test and evaluate an idea.
