The Nursing Leadership Academy for End of Life Care: Engaging Nurse Leaders in Advancing the Agenda
Abstract:
The Nursing Leadership Academy for End of Life Care: Engaging Nurse Leaders in Advancing the Agenda
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Sabatier, Kathleen
P.I. Institution Name:Johns Hopkins University
The focus of this presentation is the effort by a group of nurse leaders to engage the nursing profession in articulating the central role of nurses in designing and providing palliative and end-of-life care. Nursing associations and specialty organizations have, for many years, engaged in activities related to palliative and end-of-life care. There was, however, no coordination of these efforts or mechanism for cross-fertilization within the profession. Presenters will describe the inter-relatedness of the numerous nursing initiatives and projects that are currently underway. The presentation will describe the Nursing Leadership Academy for End of Life Care, a unique response to the need to identify and train leaders who have a wide scope of influence, and can carry the profession’s efforts to improve palliative and end of life care forward rapidly. Dr. Rushton, a well-recognized expert in the field of palliative and end of life care, sought a partnership with The Institute for Johns Hopkins Nursing, of which Ms. Sabatier is Director, in order to respond to an opportunity presented by The Open Society Institute’s Project of Death in America to develop a program for nurse leaders. The Academy’s goals are to: 1. Educate nursing leaders about palliative and end of life care, communication, ethics, organizational change and leadership; 2. Create a system of support, networking, and mentorship for nurses engaged in palliative and end of life care; 3. Develop and implement innovative strategies for advancing the Nursing Consortium priorities for end of life care. The Academy planners deliberately sought a group of nurse participants whom they felt could exert the widest influence on other nursing practice, policy, education and research. Nomination to the Academy was competitive, and designed to identify those nurses and organizations most likely to successfully implement changes to improve the care of dying patients and advance the field of palliative care. Nurse participants and the organizations that nominated them were required to commit to a minimum of two years of activity related to the improvement palliative care. The development of the leadership training will be described, including intentional decisions made about its setting, format and content. Several unique teaching methods were employed, and these will be discussed. Presenters will also delineate the impact of the Academy based on the outcome of projects undertaken by Academy participants in the two-year funding period which demonstrate successful strategies to advance the profession’s agenda for palliative and end-of-life care.
