Abstract:
Purpose:
Many healthcare organizations are seeking to create new delivery systems to address
challenges. The purpose of this study was to examine a framework and process for creating a foundation for sustainable transformations. Articulated is the concept of caring as an essential value to humanize and sustain transformation of health care environments.
Methods:
This is the first phase of a research project focused on transforming an entire health care organization by intentionally grounding it in a perspective of Caring (Boykin & Schoenhoffer, 2001). The focus was to facilitate knowing oneself and others as caring. Those in leadership positions were invited to write and share a story that illustrated the concept of living caring. Stories were analyzed for exemplars using MayeroffÆs (1972) caring ingredients.
Findings.
The stories illustrated the power of grounding organizations in caring values. The personal meaning of living caring became clear through exemplars of trust, honesty, courage, knowing, humility, hope, patience, and alternating rhythms.
Discussion:
Although grounding of Caring continues to unfold, it is transforming a way of being or relating within the organization. With a focus on living caring as the heart of this organization, challenges will be successfully addressed and the focus on person will humanize all aspects of the organization.
Table 1 - Definitions of MayeroffÆs Major Ingredients of Caring:
Knowing - Includes explicit, implicit, and direct and indirect knowing, all related to helping the other grow.
Alternating Rhythm - The ability to move back and forth between widening and narrowing viewpoints.
Patience -The active participation with another; giving the other time and space to grow.
Honesty - The genuiness and openness to truly see self and others.
Trust - Allowing self and other to grow in their own time and at their own pace.
Humility - Always being willing to learn more.
Hope - The realization of the moment alive with possibilities.
Courage - The willingness and ability to take risks; to go into the unknown.
