Abstract:

Rising Stars of Scholarship Invited Poster.

Within this poster, research uncovering the main factors that promote or reduce positive workplace culture will be presented along with their implications on the health care system. The poster will also address the current gap in the literature regarding positive workplace practice and how these factors affect nurses engaging within their workplace.

Workplace dissatisfaction has been an ongoing issue within the nursing workforce for decades and has been linked to a decline in psychological and physiological health of the individuals whom work within challenging environments (Mcnees-Smith 1998). Currently, increased reports of sick leave, medication error (Longo 2007), premature retirement or leave from the facility of employment (Griffin 2004) and poor patient care has been associated with a decline in workplace practices. Research also indicates a deterioration of workplace ethics, collegiality and camaraderie (Londo 2007) with poor workplace culture.

To improve these outcomes and promote the development and effectiveness of healthcare and nursing practice, positive interventions are required to enhance the organisational culture.

Whilst there are many influences on workplace culture, contemporary studies have been focusing on the workplace and reviewing the factors which influence staff engagement

Given the importance of engagement to the development of positive and effective workplaces and the relative lack of studies about workplace engagement in nursing, the authors suggest that this is an important area for nursing research. The authors are currently developing a study that will describe the factors which contribute to nursing staff engagement and disengagement in the workplace.
