Abstract:
Poster Presentation: In the last decades, shared governance has attracted the attention of nurse administrators. Nursing leaders seek to create a culture of nurse retention and satisfaction by implementing models of nursing practice that foster professional autonomy and collaboration. This culture of excellence needs to exist in a fiscally responsible environment that promotes safe quality patient care. Shared governance is one of the methods that can enhance nurse autonomy, collaboration, and quality of care. The specific aim of this project was to evaluate the effectiveness of a robust shared governance model at a 254 bed Midwest hospital. Effectiveness was defined as the presence of a supported and sustained organizational model that offers an opportunity for staff nurses to have an increased profile in decision making. Focus groups were used to provide rich and representative insights into participants' opinions and knowledge regarding shared governance. Five focus groups of 8-10 registered nurses were selected by purposive sampling from the nursing staff. Group participants included past and present members and non-members of shared governance. Participants were assured of confidentiality and aggregate reporting of results. The researchers used an interview guide with open ended questions to promote discussion. Qualitative data analysis will uncover emerging themes such as knowledge of shared governance; recommendations for changing structure and processes; and the influence of shared governance on motivation, sense of worth, collaboration, nurse autonomy, professionalism and accountability. The results of this evaluation research will provide information regarding the effectiveness of and methods to improve shared governance in our institution.
