PP307 - Strong Roots: Sustaining a Pressure Injury Prevention Program through Shared Governance


Standard: $5.00

Description

Developing a comprehensive pressure injury program requires an organizational commitment. Not only do the roots of this program need to be deeply embedded into the culture of the organization, the program must be hardwired into the processes and daily work flow of the front line staff nurse. Consistent care delivery at the bedside is most significantly influenced through a shared governance model which places responsibility and accountability on the shoulders of bedside clinical nurses. This session will describe the concept of shared governance and its application to a pressure injury prevention program. Two acute care hospitals will share their journey of building successful programs rooted in shared governance.
