Abstract:
Shared governance has been the foundation of nursing at a Midwestern multi-hospital integrated health care system of 7,000 nurses, which been recognized as one of the most innovative in the country. The current governance structure, built nearly 20 years ago and improved many times, is multi-layered across the system, regions, entities, and units. Changes in healthcare now drive systems to adopt zero-defect healthcare. The new Magnet Model supports zero-defect healthcare while furthering the advancement of professional nursing and providing strategic direction for the system. With strong executive support and direction from the past governance presidents and current leaders, the next generation of shared governance is being redesigned to embrace the new Magnet Model. Through this innovative approach, strategic organizational alignment to Magnet Forces will occur and unnecessary duplication will be eliminated which will directly affect outcome-driven nursing. Governance councils have been structured around the five Magnet components: Empirical Outcomes, Transformational Leadership, Structural Empowerment, Exemplary Professional Practice, and New Knowledge, Innovations & Improvements. In this presentation, we will describe the steps to transition to this new governance model; including identifying barriers, engaging staff, and measuring success based on outcomes, efficiency of processes, and nurse empowerment and satisfaction. Aggressive schedules have been determined to complete the model design with implementation timelines throughout the system by July 31, 2009. We believe describing our process to make this futuristic model operational will be of interest to many other organizations.
