Abstract:
Poster Presentation: The presence of lateral violence within nursing has sparked interest among researchers to understand more about this destructive phenomenon and identify strategies to prevent and minimize it. This research expanded on previous work by DiMeglio et al. (2005) that linked group cohesion and nurse satisfaction. The purpose of this study was to identify and increase baseline levels of nurse satisfaction and group cohesion among RNs at this hospital. A quasi-experimental, pre-post intervention design was employed. Four units were targeted: operating room, emergency department, coronary care, and in-patient surgical. Data collected pre and post intervention included demographics, a facilitator developed measure, the Group Cohesion Scale; these measures along with an IRB approved informational letter were placed in internal mailboxes of all RNs employed on the target units (N =145). Scores derived from the RN-RN Interaction subscale of the NDNQI adapted Index of Work Satisfaction were compared pre (2005) and post (2006) intervention. RNs identified by nurse managers as potential change agents were asked to participate in two, two-hour unit-based intervention sessions focused on team building. The intervention included an exercise to identify personality types, education related to lateral violence, and strategies for providing feedback and managing conflict. A total of 59 pre and 45 post intervention surveys were returned. Data analysis included descriptive statistics and relevant group comparisons. Results revealed a significant difference (p = 0.037) between pre and post group cohesion scores; RN-RN interaction scores improved on all four units. Findings support the conclusion that unit-based group intervention strategies can be effective in improving group cohesion and nurse satisfaction. These strategies have been further utilized to support and promote cohesion among nurses during changes in unit leadership, renovation projects, and transformations in nursing care...[Please contact the primary investigator for more information about this poster presentation.] REFERENCES: DiMeglio, K., et al.
