Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: There is evidence that unhealthy work environment contribute to medical errors, ineffective delivery of care, conflict and stress among nurses and other health care providers. This cycle of negative, demoralizing and unsafe conditions in our workplaces cannot be allowed to continue. Thus, creating a healthy and caring workplace is a moral imperative. Very often, staff development departments are called upon to introduce healthy work environment initiatives, but are we really experts at creating healthy work environments? Are we role models of caring environments ourselves? In today's stressful health care environment, nurse educators have good reasons to revisit the benefits of engaging and transforming themselves and ultimately their workplaces into caring work environments. This experiential and interactive workshop incorporates Jean Watson Theory of Human Caring, the CARING Principles and introduces simple strategies nurse educators may consider to transform the quality of their personal lives, create a caring work environment and engage staff in their own transformation. It will introduce nurse educators to various forms of evidence based bodymind tools that can be easily incorporated into new and exciting professional development/nursing education programs. Drawing on self reflection, meaningful dialogue, and inner wisdom, nurse educators are encouraged to reflect on their own professional practice and identify their own personal healing practices. By nurturing the human side, creating a healing environment honors and celebrates the uniqueness of each nurse helping them tap their healing powers and incorporate into nursing practice.
