The 1990 Schering Lecture: Excellence in oncology nursing: Creating the vision and making it a reality

Leslee J. Thompson, Holly Krol


This paper describes a "stepping into the future" program that was designed to help map out the future of nursing within the Toronto Bayview Regional Cancer Centre. The challenges in building an environment of excellence will be highlighted as will a model of leadership that can be used to help create the necessary energy within an organisation to move it forward. Many of the program elements could be applied or adapted n other settings, as we do hope that others will learn from our experience and test out some of these ideas in their work environment. A general discussion about the concept of excellence and change will preface the presentation of our model, as we found attention to these concepts extrememly helpful in the development of our own work.
