Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Re-designation under the new Magnet criteria places a heavy focus on clinical and service outcomes. A culture of excellence, transformational leadership at all levels and a strong interdisciplinary Shared Leadership model were key to achieving re-designation under the new standards. Through our ongoing high expectations of excellence in these areas, we were able to successfully demonstrate our sustained Magnet culture four years after initial designation. Our interdisciplinary Shared Leadership Model at the Hospital and Unit levels were strong contributors to the achievement of excellent outcomes. Staff were empowered to identify opportunities for improvements both on their units and hospital wide and to take action within given guidelines. They accepted responsibility for their practice and worked between departments on numerous issues. The role of the CNO is to establish an environment in which front line staff are empowered to make decisions that affect their practice. The concept of Shared Leadership must also be embraced by the management team in order for this to be successful. The managers in turn must empower their staff in decision making that affects their practice. These decisions can be large or small. Many of our units have been remodeled during the past few years and staff have been major contributors in planning the redesign of their units and development of new work flow processes. During more routine activities, pharmacists, nurses, respiratory therapists and others work together to improve patient care.
