This slide is a key finding from a joint Robert Wood Johnson Foundation-Gallup study that examined the views of 1,500 opinion leaders about the role nurses are playing, and should play, as health reform advances. The study, released on January 20, 2010, examines the level of trust and confidence America’s opinion leaders have in nurses, how much they expect nurses to influence health reform, and the barriers that diminish nurses’ ability to contribute to improvements in policies and management of health systems and services. It also sheds light on what actions these opinion leaders think would help ensure that nurses can take on more leadership in improving health status and delivering health care services.
