Abstract:
Five-Section Process for Front Line Nurse Leaders to Make Innovative Change in Their Workplaces
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Piddocke, Pamela, RN, BScN
P.I. Institution Name:British Columbia Nurses' Union
Title:Campaigns Officer
Purpose: To identify innovative approaches and techniques of frontline nurses to address clinical practice standards in the workplace using a win/win approach. Raising clinical practice issues in a financially stressed healthcare system requires new approaches and thinking by frontline nurses. Methods: Using a review of literature and hands on techniques that are utilized in workplaces by frontline Registered Nurses throughout British Columbia, a five section process was identified to address issues regarding workload, practice concerns, unsafe working conditions and patient safety. Examples of role models and leaders in front line nursing will be discussed and are compared with current literature. Findings: The information is divided into five sections to assist participants to understand the process and leadership requirements of addressing workplace concerns. Each section provides innovative techniques and examples of creating change. The sections are titled identifying issues, enlisting support, developing strategies, raising issues and moving forward. Nurses use these techniques in all aspects of nursing (acute care, long term care, community and special units like prisons). Innovative leaders were identified and roles analyzed to give concrete examples of effective role modeling and leading to address issues. Conclusion: Clinical issues can be changed with a win/win solution by using the five section process and innovative thinking and strategies. Support from others and encouragement for nurses are key in working through tough situations.
