Abstract:
Purpose: The purpose of this presentation is to describe a transdisciplinary approach to teaching values-based leadership to Advanced Practice Nurses. Significance: Clinical Nurse Specialists are in a prime leadership position to role-model values-based decision making to other health care providers. A transdisciplinary approach can be used as a means to enhance interaction with other disciplines within the health care setting. Design: Values-based leadership is a method of authentic decision making that builds trust and commitment between employees and customers based on the values of an individual. Values-based decision making is becoming the preferred decision-making mode in business, yet has not been widely integrated into health care settings. A transdisciplinary approach to values-based leadership provides the opportunity to interface with other disciplines as a means to achieve a broader identification of personal values that can be used as a basis for decision making in the workplace. Methods: A seminar format was used to teach values-based leadership content to post-Master's Advanced Practice Nurses. Faculty for the seminar included a CNS faculty member, a Nurse Practitioner faculty member, and a religious studies faculty member. A transdisciplinary approach was used as a framework for the seminar. This approach requires a high level of communication among all participants and recognizes the unique expertise of all; the role of expert is fluid and includes not only the faculty, but also the students. Group activities and individual reflections were integrated throughout the seminar. Findings: The seminar received favorable reviews from both faculty and students. Plans are to offer the seminar on a yearly basis. Conclusions: Values-based leadership has a role in health care. CNSs are positioned to model values-based leadership to others. A transdisciplinary teaching approach results in a wide variety of perspectives in order to achieve individual values clarification. Implications for Practice: Values can be used as a basis for decision making in complex situations, such as those encountered in the health care setting. Teaching values-based leadership results in a translation of this skill into practice. Using a transdisciplinary approach encourages interactions and communication among disciplines.
