|Aims and Objectives|
A major global concern is how to grow the next generation of nurse leaders in transdisciplinary geriatric UI/LUTS research, practice, education, and policy. This workshop will provide a leadership training environment to jump-start the process needed to achieve the overall goal of this workshop: To develop a global network of nurse leaders in the area of geriatric UI/LUTS. Four workshop leaders will engage participants to define an eight-step change process for strategic planning, use leadership skills needed to draft a vision and plan for plan change during times of uncertainty and explore how this draft will be developed in collaboration with the ICS Nursing Committee.
