[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Research Symposium Presentation]Purpose: The purpose of this elective is to provide a theoretical framework for understanding the complexity of the healthcare system, as it pertains to organizations, systems, policy, and to population health. This elective focuses on the theory of complex adaptive systems in four strategic areas of healthcare practice: quality and safety; innovation and diffusion- medical devices and information technologies; policy issues in coordination of care; and evidence-based practice and evaluation.  Nursing leaders in healthcare practice in complex systems environments, from the complexity of local communities to global health and policy issues. They continually make decisions about strategic programs, initiatives, and investments in healthcare services that affect, and are affected by other system elements. Students analyze their capstone projects in the context of complex adaptive systems and formally present their analyses. 
Methods:  To further develop expository writing skills targeted to innovation and professional communication, students develop a strategic healthcare initiative of their choosing, based on principles of complex adaptive systems; conduct analyses of these initiatives based on the theory of complex adaptive systems; and develop and test a formal communications strategy. We will conclude the presentation with a summary of the alignment between DNP program goals and curriculum performance improvement strategies, in the context of healthcare complexity. 
Results: Student evaluations will provide qualitative and quantitative data to evaluate this course in relation to program objectives
Conclusion: The science of complexity provides a context for consideration of the DNP graduate role in a complex global healthcare community.  If the aforementioned curriculum emphases on data driven scholarship and expository writing are to be successful, they must result in effective translation by the graduate to the multiple stakeholders in a complex healthcare community, including healthcare consumers. In this presentation, we will focus on the content and approach of an elective DNP course: "Complexity of Healthcare Systems."
