Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Successful communication involves more than word of mouth and memos. Technology can be used as an adjunct in getting the word out. Along with traditional methods such as memos, newsletters and announcement boards, computers offer enhanced avenues of communication. In order to receive and respond to unit and hospital information, all staff has e-mail. For example, a weekly multiple-choice clinical question is e-mailed to all staff with the answer and explanation sent the following week. The unit specific web page contains links to not only unit specific information, but also hospital and national resources. Committee meeting dates and minutes are accessible through the unit web page. One unique feature of the web page is the direct link to textbooks on line. Annual competencies and all necessary reference materials are available on the web page. Our unit piloted the use of teleconferencing for staff meetings. Based on that success, we began using this method for other meetings and educational activities. Staff uses an 800 number to join the conference in the comfort of their home with full participation capability. Traditional communication is integrated through non- traditional methods such as web conferencing and the ability to email MP3 recordings of staff meetings to requesting staff. Multiple methods of communication enhance staff satisfaction and unit operations through easy access resulting in a well-informed staff.
