Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Our Health System includes 5 hospitals, 2 cities, 1,000 beds, 2,000 nurses, and 7,000 employees. Maintaining a unified Magnet culture is a challenge. Our success has been the continuation of the multidisciplinary Magnet Champion role post designation. Magnet Champions meet quarterly to address four key areas: 1. On our Magnet Anniversary, each campus holds a celebration. The Champions are given a budget and plan every detail. Their creativity and enthusiasm has ensured a grassroots approach to staff participation and attendance at these celebrations. 2. The Champion group selects a department each quarter that exemplifies the Magnet Forces. The Champions and leaders from the hospital invade the winning department to present the Keeping the Forces Alive award. 3. The Champions identify Magnet moments throughout the quarter. The summaries are used for ongoing Magnet documentation. One moment is selected each week and posted on System-wide email. 4. Champions work closely with the Magnet Coordinator to plan and implement the yearly Magnet workshop. The programs are fun, interactive, and include activities that can be taken back to the departments to teach the Forces. Outcomes from this multidisciplinary Champion strategy include: An ongoing presence of the Magnet culture throughout all campuses and departments; A broad foundation of over 200 Champions who are committed to the Magnet culture; and A tremendous amount of Magnet work that is easily carried by individual Champions who spend 8 hours in non-productive time per year.
