Indeed, it is necessary for nurses to develop some leadership skill, so that they are capable to delivery of high-quality healthcare despitefacedchallenges.Therefore, creative solutions should formulate to ensure that nurses can stand still in facing all kinds of challenges. “As nursing gains increasing influence in all aspects of healthcare provision, it is vital that practitioners develop leadership skills at an early stage in their careers”. (Middleton, 2011). In the economics squeeze and yet high demand on healthcare, development of leadership skill will be crucial in defending nursing jobs. A good management and presented leadership skill make it possible for recognition on the contribution of good nursing care makes to both patient outcomes and cost-efficiency.
EFFECTIVE COORDINATION OF ACTIVITIES OF THE HOSPITAL TO IMPROVE PATIENT’S CARE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE CONCEPT Coordination is one of the management functions and it is defined by Merriam Webster dictionary as the process of organizing people or groups so that they work together properly and well. It could also be defined as the process of organizing the various elements of a complex whole to function accurately and efficiently. Coordination in any organization is very vital as organization and also helps to maintain and ensure efficient operations in every department through effective communication and supervision.

Decision making is an important element of the managers role that is based upon problems or potential issues. Throughout each 24-hour day, nurse managers make countless decisions that impact patient, staff and organisational outcomes (Shirey et al., 2013).These decisions take place in complex work environments often with incomplete information, role overload and frequent interruptions which can affect the decision making process.However, it has been highlighted that a lack of involvement in practice-related decision making is a major source of nurses’ job dissatisfaction (Kramer and Schmalenberg, 2003, cited in MacPhee et al., 2010).The nurse manager should engage staff in unit based decisions and assist them to be part of the solution for the unit based issues so they can become the leaders of change. This shared decision making strategy can also be referred to as a structural empowerment strategy.Structural empowerment refers to employees’ access to information, resources, supports and opportunities through formal or informal lines of power (MacPhee et al, 2010). The results of this approach predict nurse job satisfaction, decision involvement and trust and respect in
“The healthcare system is in chaos. It is critical then that contemporary nursing and healthcare leaders identify skills sets that will be needed by nurse leaders in 2020 and begin now to create the educational models and development programs necessary to assure these skills are present” (Huston, 2008). Dictionary.com (n.d.) had defined chaos as a state of confusion, disorder, disorganized or a behavior of a system which is unpredictable and random. Healthcare system now is in chaos, mainly due to the reforming, emerging of technology, rapidly increase in demand due to increase populations in chronic illness, scientific advances and high expectation on quality patient outcome by educated public. Marquis and Huston (2015) had mentioned the traditional management and leadership that concentrated on short term goal is no longer can adapt according to the rapid changes in healthcare system.
Participatory Leadership in the Nursing Industry Introduction Today, the old traditional image of an authoritarian leader with a non-negotiable expression on his face that always gives strict orders to employees is no more consistent. The very concept of leadership has significantly evolved over the past decades. Scientific evidence confirms that participative leadership style significantly improves team performance and contributes to the effective change management (Kumar & Khiljee, 2016; Saleeby, Holschneider, & Singhal, 2016). Demonstrating effective leadership qualities has become a necessity for clinicians in today 's healthcare system. Participatory leadership style, when applied in the healthcare settings subjected to change implies an active participation of the key stakeholders in the transformation process.
Introduction In this era of sophisticated and advanced technologies, healthcare is changing rapidly and becoming more complex. Leadership is important in the healthcare setting as the healthcare system itself is diversity. According to the Institute of Medicine (2010), a recent report titled “The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health” emphasizes the nurses’ essential roles as leader in the healthcare system. Nursing is not only a scientifically based profession but the value of ‘caring’ is at its core. The quality of being able to care makes nursing equals to leadership, which means that every nurse is a leader (McBride, 2011).
Self-Evaluation of Master of Health Care Administration degree The assignment of self-evaluation as it relates to the achievement of Master of Health Care Administration degree is difficult to put into scholarly texture. Defining the journey leading to this degree pursuit can be long winded and more of a documentation of key cornerstones in life. This leading to the desire to service in an advanced role of health care policy and leadership that this advance degree allows. The personal exposure in this project is acceptable as this is a journey of service driven purpose. Speaking to the industry and fighting the good fight on behalf of those that do not have a voice or ability to protect their honor and dignity.
To this day, your doctor aids the patient in understanding their medical condition and treatment, but ultimately, the patient is the one making the decision. For this highly debated topic, I will be agreeing with yes side because I believe that patient autonomy/informed consent is very important when it comes to making rational decisions about your health. I believe that Dan Brock and Steven Warman’s argument not only supports my decision, they also had very strong arguments to why patient autonomy is crucial in the medical field. On the contrary, Gordon Stirrat and Robin Gill say that whether the physician or patient makes a decision, all decisions should be respected based on a mutual level of trust between all
This topic was very difficult for me to assess or even formulate a solid opinion on as it is a very deep and complicated case. Throughout nursing school, I have been taught that respect for patient autonomy is an important and indispensable principle in the ethical practice of clinical nursing. Legal tenets recognize the importance of this principle and the inherent right of patients of sound mind and properly informed, to make their own personal medical decisions. In the course of everyday medical practice, however, challenging cases may result in ethical dilemmas for the patient, the medical team, and the hospital. Resolution of these dilemmas requires a thorough understanding of the underlying principles that allow the clinician to make informed decisions and to offer considered therapeutic options to the patient.
Adding an ideal system to your organization means deploying best-fit technology designed specifically for your facility. If your facility plans to participate in CMS EHR incentive programs, review the certification process before making a final decision about buying software, hardware and ancillary components. Conclusion: Organizations that invest time and financial resources to understand the unique needs of staff and patients position themselves to successfully rollout an EHR system. In fact, every step on the journey toward full EHR adoption from research through pre-launch testing is crucial to implementing technology solutions that will improve productivity, reduce operating costs and enable positive patient
As patient loads are increasing and providers have less time to interact with the patient, it is essential to include all feedback from the UAP. As I pursue my career as an APRN, it is vital to build a level of trust and camaraderie with co-workers regardless of their job title. Communication is the key to providing excellent care to the
