Vincennes-based Good Samaritan hospital has been chosen to participate in Magnet4Europe, described as the largest international clinical study to date. The initiative is a European Commission-funded, randomized trial to redesign hospitals to improve employee mental health, retention of medical personnel and patient safety.
The collaboration results in 60 U.S. hospitals working with 60 European hospitals to find if the framework of the initiative is effective and sustainable in Europe to improve care, safety and patient satisfaction. The European Union’s Horizon 2020 Program has offered 4 million Euros to fund the program.
Good Samaritan will participate in the U.S. Study of Clinician Wellbeing and Patient Outcomes. It’s the first large-scale study of the mental health of American hospital nurses and doctors.
