Abstract:
Poster Presentation: In today's ever-changing, complex healthcare environment, nurses encounter multiple challenges, including: role expansion, cost-containment efforts, and redesign of healthcare systems preparing for forecasted issues. While challenges can be overwhelming, nurses no longer accept task completion as a practice outcome. Nurses seek opportunities to provide comprehensive professional care in systems that support autonomy, input, and decision-making. Environments supporting teamwork, creativity and accountability are essential to achieve optimal clinical and operational outcomes. The Professional Practice Council (PPC) structure in a large, comprehensive cancer center was evaluated by sending surveys to 2200 nurses employed at the center, benchmarking with institutions across the country, and meeting with a shared governance expert consultant. Challenges to build a governance structure were considered and goals were established to develop a model that was flexible and cross functional, defined interrelationships of populations, resources, ideas and knowledge, and ensured quick and effective responses to identified concerns. The workgroup recommended a congressional model, the Nursing Practice Congress, comprised of elected professional nurses from respective constituencies and Professional Action Coordinating Teams (PACTs) to be formed as needed to address specific issues. The PPCs were transitioned to the Nursing Practice Congress January, 2006. A webpage and database are under development to communicate work accomplished by the NPC and PACTs. The mission, vision, and core values of an organization can be demonstrated by outcomes of shared decision making, evidence-based patient care, increased accountabilty, staff and leadership satisfaction, and professional role development when nurses participate in shared governance.
