Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: The purpose of this session is to reflect on catalysts, cultural changes and global adaptations needed for adopting the Magnet Recognition Program internationally. The presenters will showcase tools developed encompassing Magnet Forces and Mandatory Nurse Sensitive Indicators to support strategic planning. The Princess Alexandra Hospital is the first organization in the Southern Hemisphere to receive the prestigious Magnet Designation. We believe that the Magnet Program has lived up to its promise to provide our organization with a framework to examine and improve systematically our nursing environment and embed a culture that continually analyses workforce and patient outcomes data. In turn this provides a rich evidence base for decision making and shared governance. In this paper we reflect on key factors that acted as the catalyst for embarking on the Magnet Journey and share the processes used and the various tools that we have developed. We demonstrate cultural changes that have occurred within our organization from the initial onset. We explore how we have adapted the program to mesh with our healthcare system, and provide insights on how this program may be translated globally. We showcase a number of tools that we have developed that encompass the Best Practice Quality Framework, Australian Healthcare Standards and the Magnet Forces. We explain how the Mandatory Nurse Sensitive Indicators have changed our focus to improving patient outcomes and the tools used to support strategic planning in our organization. Finally, we illustrate how the Princess Alexandra Hospital remains enthusiastic and has gendered this whilst isolated from receiving local mentoring support.
