Young Executive Leaders 2020

Hospital Sant Joan de Déu, Spain


I am currently the leading nurse in charge of research at Hospital Sant Joan de Déu and the leader of the Sant Joan de Déu Foundation nursing research line. The research group I am promoting does research on how to give the best approach to the patient/family and provide them with a personalized, holistic and comprehensive care, based on scientific evidence, to achieve a fast reintegration in their usual environment (enhancing them, improving quality of life and experience within our institution).

As a leader in research at our institution, I believe it is very important to share knowledge and results in addressing patients and families around this great pandemic, as well as to create synergies with other centers worldwide.
