Flatten the Learning Curve

Pushing through the unprecedented challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic requires new approaches, ideas and solutions. 

Faced with a steep learning curve, many folks are being extraordinarily creative. The U-M School of Nursing Healthcare Innovation Impact Program (HiiP) has initiated a "Flatten the Learning Curve" community effort to gather and disseminate your successes, solutions and ideas so that we can all learn from each other together. 

If you figure out a solution, a workaround or even just have a tip — be it in teaching, research, practice or leadership/service — let us know and we will share within our nursing community. 

If Light bulb you have a "big" idea (improving patient care, access to PPE and other supplies, helping the community, protecting the vulnerable, etc.) but you don't know where to go with it, just let us know. We can help you think about your idea in the context of COVID-related innovation already happening on campus. We can also bring your idea to the innovation group working to facilitate COVID-related innovation between Michigan Medicine and U-M.

Send your ideas to Ann Fitzsimons.

Together, we can flatten the learning curve.
