Whole-systems Shared Governance: Architecture for Integration
Aspen Publishers, 1997 - Health services administration - 323 pages
Whole-systems shared governance is the new term for a system that unites all professionals involved in the care delivery process -- nurses, other clinical disciplines, physicians, and administrators -- under a structure that integrates clinical, support, and organizational concerns across traditional boundaries. This book describes the context, structure, principles, and implementation of whole-systems shared governance for nurses and other health care managers and administrators. Dr. Tim Porter-O'Grady has written a dynamic new resource that ties together shared governance and the new integrated health care systems. Whole-Systems Shared Governance: Architecture for Integration outlines a template you can use to unite nurses, physicians, managers, administrators, board members, and other major stakeholders in planning a whole systems approach to service delivery.
