Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Purpose: Successful interdisciplinary shared governance demands open communication and collaborative teamwork. Building upon guiding principles of accountability, equity, ownership, and partnership, the Nursing Practice Congress (NPC) embarked on a journey to improve the inclusiveness and effectiveness of NPC. Methods: A Multidisciplinary Shared Governance Workgroup was created in 2008 to plan the transition of NPC to an interdisciplinary constituency. Multidisciplinary colleagues have historically been active members on many NPC Professional Action Coordinating Teams (PACTs), workgroups assembled for short periods of time to resolve specific clinical issues. By expanding the NPC to include interdisciplinary colleagues with full voting privileges, the goal was to improve communication, transparency, and partnership, increasing respect and appreciation for contributions each discipline provides in a complex environment. Processes for obtaining delegates in proportional numbers and their selection were developed. A peer election process using a web-based electronic ballot was used allowing prospective delegates to post a picture, biography and goals as an NPC member. Results: Twenty-one elected interdisciplinary representatives became members of the NPC and began serving two-year terms in September 2009. Many have submitted issues and assumed roles as PACT Leaders. Interdisciplinary participation on PACTs has increased by 58% from the previous year. Conclusion: Strengthening interdisciplinary shared governance encourages relationship building, enhancing partnerships that support improved clinically-driven decision-making. The process and outcomes of this evolution of shared governance will be shared in the presentation.
