Description: To engage provincial decision makers, policy developers, nurse managers and nursing staff with the Quality Work Environment Study (QWEST) research team, expert collaborators and advisory committee in a one-day invitational symposium on improving their nursing workplaces for both better quality worklife and improved patient outcomes. The foundation for the QWEST symposium was not only to create new knowledge, but also to translate that new knowledge into action through collaboration with members in the healthcare community.
