These supplemental materials from Rethinking Your Unit Council Structure include Chapter 2, "The Evolution of Governance Models," among other items. More about the book:
Rapid change is constant in the healthcare industry, leaving hospitals—and the units within—to react and adapt. Unfortunately, the typical shared (professional) governance structure fails to address the challenges of modern healthcare systems, both in efficiency and ability to maintain long-term change. As a result, change in healthcare is often met with roadblocks and resistance.
Rethinking Your Unit Council Structure applies the innovative FLIGHT Model of risk and change to:
- Determine your unit’s immediate needs
- Empower team members to identify problems and initiate solutions
- Transcend elements of traditional unit council structures that hinder progress
- Improve staff engagement and satisfaction
This book provides a solutions-based approach to determining and addressing the unique needs of your unit, hospital, or system so that your change initiatives can succeed.
