Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This session will explore how shared governance, inclusive of unit councils, is a management style reflective of a hospital workplace environment associated with Magnet-designated hospitals and, as such, may help reverse a hospital's nursing shortage. ABSTRACT: I presented this information at the 2007 Magnet conference. It was a big hit. After the conference, I received over 150+ emails and phone calls related to unit councils. There are a lot of hospitals struggling with implementing a successful unit council. I was also invited to speak at over dozen hospitals. Unfortunately, I was not able to accept these invitations. But I have coached, mentored, and counciled various healthcare organizations over the phone and via email. I also created a step by step resource book to help managers get started. The resource book was a big hit with the audience. I was overwhelmed by the demand for the step by step unit council resource book. I am currently working with Ms. Cynthia Sweeney to publish the resource tool book through ANCC. Due to the overwhelming response from the conference, we thought it might be a good idea to offer an "encore" presentation for the 2008 Magnet conference. I would be happy to forward you a copy of the resource tool book for your review. In closing, I realize there is a big need for information related unit councils and how to successfully implement them and keep them going. Our presentation also includes evidence to clearly reflect the positive impact from a successful unit council (i.e., increased morale and staff participation). I am currently the VP & Chief Nursing Officer at Madison County Hospital in London, Ohio. Thank you for your time and consideration.
