Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This presentation will describe how nursing leadership integrated the Forces of Magnetism into nursing practice in multiple ambulatory practice settings in a large geographical. ABSTRACT: As leaders with expertise in ambulatory care we under took the process of integrating the Magnet culture into a large geographically challenged health care system. The outpatient ambulatory volume encompasses 2.5 million outpatient office visits with 27,000 surgical cases annually. Our practice provides primary/specialty and surgical care across five counties in Northeast Ohio. In order for our ambulatory practice to integrate the shared governance model nursing leadership focused on collaboration among facilities. With the creation of ambulatory unit based councils a multidisciplinary approach to enhance the shared decision amongst team members helped with this success. The election of a President of Nursing empowered a front line caregiver as the voice of ambulatory nursing in our organization. Using site specific Magnet Ambassadors, each department was guided through the Magnet re-designation process; thus we engrained the forces of Magnetism into our culture. Developing both shared and site specific outcome measures promoted benchmarking and elevated nursing practice. Barriers that continue to challenge our organization include our geographic size, each facilities unique cultural difference, and ensuring that the time is allotted for the Magnet/Shared Governance priority focus. The continued support and communication amongst nursing leadership was imperative to the success of this process. As others embark on the Magnet journey we hope that our lessons learned will help as a guide to their success.
