Overview

Turn the theory of shared governance into a reality


Includes more than 30 customizable tools and forms!

Change is possible. Use the principles of shared governance to improve nursing satisfaction and patient care.

Anecdotal accounts and research studies attempt to connect shared governance with rosy outcomes. But without defining and measuring its underlying concepts, how can organizations assess it? And if shared governance isn’t defined and measured, how can it be connected to outcomes?

Change your nursing culture for the better. This book shows you how to define and measure shared governance so you can evaluate efficacy and analyze outcomes. Easy–to–implement strategies help you successfully introduce shared governance or revitalize an existing model.

Foreword written by Tim Porter–O’Grady, DM, EdD, ScD(h), APRN, FAAN, and tools and guidance from Robert Hess, PhD, RN, FAAN. Order today!
