Abstract:

Poster presented on: Saturday, November 16, 2013, Sunday, November 17, 2013

Morale can be complex and locally based so it is difficult to define and identify the underlying issues. Morale problems and solutions are not universal so it can be very difficult to put a blanket approach to morale across a profession or workgroup; particularly in health care. This project focused on two approaches to Morale: intrinsic factors and extrinsic factors related to the culture of an acute health care setting. Direct nursing managers were identified as key influencers in this project.  Supporting the formal leadership role for creating and sustaining a positive work environment in collaboration with physicians and staff was also identified necessary for success.
