Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Co-Management: Challenging the Leadership Paradigm Historically, in order to save organizational dollars hospitals redesigned the Nurse Managers workload to be responsible for two or three nursing units. However, this design led the Nurse Manager away from the clinical arena to working purely administrative functions, leaving them unable to advocate and support for their staff. This image does little to recruit leadership savvy staff nurses to the Nurse Manager role. In order to attract these high quality nurses to the Nurse Manager role, new management models must be developed. A Midwestern Pediatric Medical Center (MPMC) trialed and implemented the co-manager model. This model consists of two full time nurse managers responsible for one nursing unit. Skeptics might think that this model would be more costly than a single Nurse Manager however MPMC found that a co-manager model produced a net cost savings. The cost savings was due to an increase in staff retention, increase in productive hours, and improved Nurse Manager role satisfaction and stability. This poster presentation will highlight three important elements for successful implementation of the co-manager model. The first will be the operational details which will include specifics on staff retention and satisfaction scores. The second component will demonstrate clinical responsibilities, day to day unit coverage, and how this team avoids potential communication pitfalls. And finally, the presentation will illustrate how co-management roles have enabled each manager the autonomy to follow their leadership passions. References: Carroll, C.A., Lacey, S.R., & Cox, K.S.
