“The FLIGHT Model shatters the glass! Finally, a fresh and innovative approachthat flips conventional unit-based governance on its head.”Celia Guarino, MSN, RN, NEA-BCChief Nursing OfficerHoly Cross Health and Holy Cross Hospital
INDIANAPOLIS (PRWEB) July 08, 2019
Rapid change is constant in the healthcare industry, leaving hospitals—and the units within—to react and adapt. In many settings, the governance structure that is in place fails to address the challenges of modern healthcare systems, leading to roadblocks and resistance in embracing change. The result is frustration among nurses and providers that ultimately can impact patient care, health costs, and progress.
Sigma’s new nursing book, Rethinking Your Unit Council Structure: An Innovative Approach to Shared Governance in Healthcare, introduces the FLIGHT Model—Fostering Leadership, Innovation, and Growth through Healthcare Teams. It incorporates an approach that is professionally designed, outcome-focused, interprofessional, and acts as a framework within which a team can achieve the ideals of professional governance.
“The FLIGHT Model empowers the entire interprofessional team to develop and implement change to improve patient care, influence professional development, and promote collaboration among the care team,” said Browder. “Projects developed within the FLIGHT Model connect and unite team members toward achieving overarching organizational goals, and unifying leadership and clinical employees toward a unified destination.”
