Abstract:
Poster Presentation: The vehicle for shared decision making at the point-of-service within our Medical Center is the unit/clinic board. Boards provide a venue for all voices to be heard at the direct care level across the organization. Built upon trust, collaboration and accountability, the structure has yielded exceptional results in terms of improvements in care delivery and quality of work life, increase in staff satisfaction and professional and personal development of front-line staff. As part of our re-commitment to this culture,focused resources including education, coaching, and multiple lines of communication are in place. "Best processes" that characterize our shared governance implementation are: partnerships, agenda planning, consensus decisions, work guided by charters, interdisciplinary collaboration, education and coaching, Nursing Bylaws, and continuous evaluation. To develop leaders at all levels and hardwire shared decison-making, continuous education and efforts to raise consciousness are maintained. Frontline staff is supported with opportunities to learn and practice group facilitation. They receive practical coaching regarding positively influencing colleagues at the local level. Mechanisms of communication and networking are in place so that staff and managers can collaborate easily and share best practices regardng how to identify and solve problems at the point of service. Decentralized groups such as research nurses and advanced practice nurses participate in center-wide councils and committees and are incorporated into the Nursing Bylaws structure. Our direct care staff is not only involved and included in decision making but is empowered to make a difference. Empowerment coupled with accountability and persistence is necessary to sustain this culture.
