ABSTRACT

Identifying what is working well in healthcare requires a different mindset from the traditional problem-solving approach. Integrating Appreciative Inquiry into healthcare can bring out the best in individuals, teams and the organisation as a whole. This paper presents our approach to educating nurse leaders about AI practice, by using AI to create a community of leadership and management practice in a postgraduate nursing course on leadership and management in health care.
