Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: Professional practice models are identified as key structures that facilitate staff involvement in decision-making and accountability for practice. Various models exist, including the widely described shared governance councilor model. While councils and committees create structure, the essence of shared governance is in how those structures facilitate nurse participation in decision-making pertaining to nursing practice, standards, and quality of care. In 1983, we became one of the first organizations to pioneer a shared governance model for professional practice. This presentation will discuss what we have experienced as essential elements for the success of our committee-based shared governance organization. Over time our shared governance has evolved with changes in healthcare, developed responses to needs of the nursing organization, and matured in its level of sophistication. Now, fully integrated into the fabric of nursing, it is more than an organization: it is the way we function. The Chief Nursing Officer and President of our shared governance organization will discuss how we operationalize key factors for success including: 1) Nursing leaders role in developing staff leaders and creating an environment where staff nurse input is sought; 2) A model patterned after our medical staff organization which gained immediate recognition and respect from the hospital board and medical staff; 3) Key nursing practice committees that support professional practice; 4) Staff involvement in meaningful decision making; 5) Unit and Department advisory committees where managers and staff discuss and make practice decisions; 6) Opportunities to recognize nursing excellence; 7) Interface at the Board level and 8) Financial support.
