Leadership for Change
As part of our commitment to developing Qatari nurse leaders, HMC is working in partnership with the World Health Organization, the
Supreme Council of Health and the Primary Health Care Corporation to facilitate the Leadership for Change program. The program is based on action-learning principles and is designed to support nurses and allied healthcare professionals to become effective leaders in their fields and to improve the quality of healthcare services by managing critical challenges facing Qatar’s healthcare sector.
Fourteen HMC Qatari nurses are enrolled in the program which is the first of its kind in Qatar and is designed to assist nursing leaders in the effective management and implementation of strategic and tactical plans.

Nursing Grand Rounds
Nursing Grand Rounds (NGR) provide an educational opportunity for our nurses to promote excellence in nursing through scholarly presentations. NGR provides HMC staff nurses with a forum to share clinical expertise and nursing best practice across HMC. Nurses gain new knowledge and learn new skills or improve current ones, in an environment of learning which focuses on both the science and the art of nursing.
Magnet Recognition Program®
The American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Magnet® designation is the highest and most prestigious credential a healthcare organization can achieve for nursing excellence and quality patient care. This performance-driven credential brings both external prestige and wide-ranging internal benefits, including improved safety, nurse satisfaction and retention, reduced costs and superior patient outcomes.
Developed by ANCC, Magnet is the leading source of successful nursing practices and strategies worldwide.
The US News and World Report utilizes Magnet designation as a primary competence indicator in its assessment of almost 5,000 hospitals to rank and report the best medical centers in 16 specialties.
In the Leapfrog Hospital Survey, the United States oldest survey comparing hospital performance in safety, quality and efficiency, Magnet designation automatically earns full credit for Safe Practice #9 Nursing Workforce. This section of the survey scores hospitals on their commitment to staffing with highly trained nurses and putting nurses in leadership positions that allow them substantial input on patient safety issues.
Magnet requires organizations to develop, disseminate and enculturate evidence-based criteria that result in a positive work environment for nurses and, by extension, all employees.
