Abstract:
Paper Presentation: Communication is a key element of the journey to Magnet designation. From the beginning, processes and structures were developed and implemented to enhance communication within and across our organization. This presentation is designed to share the many ways we enhanced communication at our facility throughout the Magnet journey and continuing today. Mechanisms include: Nursing unit meetings with VP/CNO and/or members of the Magnet Steering Committee; Development of a Nursing Newsletter; Restructuring of Nursing Shared Leadership; Creation of Posters and Handouts describing the Forces of Magnetism; Emails to all employees highlighting the Magnet Standards (Magnet Minutes); Showing the ANCC video, "Profiles in Excellence" on all units; Marketing & Communication created a display for a large blue board (8 x 30) in our cafeteria to showcase the key elements of the Magnet Recognition Program - this board changed as we progressed through the process; Snippets of information were included in the weekly 1-page employee paper (Outlook) to communicate what was needed for each standard and later to share our progress on the journey; Articles about Magnet were included in the in-house magazine (Spectrum); Emails to all employees from the President occur every Friday, many of these included updates about the Magnet journey (Mike's Friday Email); Attendance at meetings of all non-nursing stakeholders including the Medical Executive Committee, Medical Staff, the Board of Directors, Quality Council, Ethics Committee, Research Foundation, Administrative Council, and Combined Managers; and Creation of the Magnet Intranet Web site References: ANCC Magnet Recognition Program Process Manual, 2003-2004.
