Collective process and action were the agenda for this amazing day!

Robin Youngson started off the day leading a session around the impact of compassion on the healing process.   He shared compelling scientific data on that impact, driving home the point that compassion GREATLY impacts healing.   It is hard to imagine any justification for not being intentionally compassionate.   It does not involve the use of time….just the use of heart and brain.

Another powerful event was an inter-professional conversation of young clinicians on  their work and their ideas about a better future for health care.   This was a ‘fishbowl’ type of event where they sat in the middle of the room on a raised dias, with the audience sitting around them…..listening to their conversation.   A stunning event….there is so much to learn from each other.

Culminating today’s events, David Cooperrider explained  the well-known Appreciative Inquiry (AI) methodology; and utilized that to lead participants through a synergistic process that focused on what people do right – instead of focusing just on problems.

Conference participants continually comment on the magnificence of this conference, how it is changing the way they feel and think and how grateful they are to be able to attend.

This is the busiest day of the CHCM International Relationship-Based Care Symposium, so to keep the posts from getting too long, will be sharing snippets & segments!

Launched by the wonderful Keynote by Lois Swope on compassionate care; with an all-attendee mid-day session on relationship-building in Indian Health from Phoenix Indian Medical Center; and concluding with a Poster Session; the day also included two breakout sessions with 5 choices each of those sessions! (Please join me in thanking the CHCM staff, they’ve been working extremely hard to bring this all together!)

Today is the first official day of the 2017 International Relationship-Based Care Symposium, here in Minneapolis at the Hilton Minneapolis! Read on for notes, hand-out links and inside peeks into Day 2.

The MusicParadigm experience made a huge impression on me when I first took it in, several years ago. I told everyone I talked to about it for weeks! It is such a unique,  substantively clear demonstration of the clear power of positive leadership. If you are experiencing it with us today, I would love to hear what you think of it! Otherwise I hope you catch it as soon as you’re able.

I’ve written about The James previously on this blog – along with UC-Davis they hold a pre-eminent position in US critical care health care systems for their extensive and inspired implementation of Relationship-Based Care.

1.Hosp, 6.Doors, 60.Wards   – Such an amazing presentation, from a multi-site hospital in Italian-speaking Switzerland; implementing Relationship-Based Care – escaping silo’s and nurturing compassionate care.

Theory without Practice is empty and Practice without Theory is Blind – Emmanuel Kant

Next was a presentation from the CNO and the CMO about how they’re partnering at Pennsylvania Hospital,  and creating an extraordinarily healthy culture there.  The day ended with a  delightful vocal experience of Full Voice lead byBarbara McAfee!

Today is the pre-conference afternoon of the 2017 International Relationship-Based Care Symposium, here in Minneapolis at the Hilton Minneapolis!

Here are links to the handout materials available at this time:

Gratitude_Human_Connection

DeepenFacilitationCapacity

It’s been great already to have a brunch at my home – to which I invited international guests, several local nursing leaders and CHCM consultants. Conversations ranged over various topics including comparisons between people’s situations in different countries.

The conference itself is a very enthusiastic experience! I have been constantly in motion and it’s wonderful. Everyone is very happy to be here and many are saying ‘this is exactly what we need at our hospital!’

This afternoon I was able to be a surprise guest at the Daisy Foundation session. I spoke about the the impact of Florence Marie Fisher coloring in my coloring book, and also what a wonderful thing it was for me to be able to nominate her for the DAISY award. In closing I brought in Florence Nightingale as well.

I enjoy talking about the power of nursing: as I experienced in my lifetime the impact of my nurse when I was five years old.  I like to make it clear that the work that I’ve been involved in leading is directly the result of Florence Marie Fisher coloring in my coloring book.

I don’t think that that concept can possibly be emphasized too strongly: the power of good nursing care!

Much more to come, looking forward to sharing it with all of you!

 

 

Authentic Nursing: Past, Present and Future June 18, 2017

Nursing is a dynamic profession, constantly moving forward for the well-being of patients and their families.

Let’s look back at one of the early mainstream articles about the onset of Primary Nursing; let’s celebrate recent exciting book releases; and let’s prepare for an incredible week of growth and discovery at the CHCM International Relationship-Based Care Symposium!!

Looking back at the Past:

Primary Nursing: Hospitals bring back Florence Nightingale

ChgoTrib_2.78_PageOne
ChgoTrib_2.78_PageTwo

This article provides clear details about the way things were before Primary Nursing. This excerpt (from the 2nd page) is talking about Carol Davis, Primary Nurse, who had been ‘foreman’ in a task-based nursing delivery system at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke’s in Chicago before the implementation of Primary Nursing there.

“I was the kingpin who cracked a whip over a crew of people who were unskilled, making sure they got their tasks done,” Davis recalls. “That kept me running around like a chicken without a head.”

She managed about a dozen or so aides, assigning them to various tasks for 25 to 40 patients. Davis made sure the chores were completed on schedule and recorded on patients’ charts, and that her workers went to lunch and returned on time.

Having her own ‘team’ was unheard of. Her aides, like chessmen, were constantly shifted around to other registered nurses, new patients, new units and new tasks. She didn’t have time to get to know her helpers and their abilities.

Furthermore, she had no time for interacting with patients except at pill time. “We were caught in a system that put procedures ahead of patients’ needs,” Davis says. “Nursing didn’t have much of a human face, yet none of us knew how to correct that.”

Results included a turnover rate of RN’s of 48.7% each year!

Celebrating the Present:

Advancing Relationship-Based Cultures is Creative Health Care Management’s newest publication, just in time for the Symposium! Edited by Mary Koloroutis, and David Abelson, the book explores the  culture of health care organizations, looks at what is  necessary for optimal outcomes, and suggests strategies to achieve those outcomes. Advancing Relationship-Based Cultures explains and expands a fundamental and often overlooked truth in health care: It is the confluence of relational and clinical competence that advances healing cultures.

Not as recent, but very relevant: Transforming Interprofessional Partnerships – A New Framework for Nursing and Partnership-Based Health Care by Riane Eisler and Teddie Potter. The only interprofessional partnership text written from the nursing perspective, it provids a model for partnership with patients and other health care professionals.

Prepare for the Future: The Symposium is Here!!!

And moving forward, the Symposium is here! Next week will be an incredible journey, which we’ll share here on the blog as much as possible.

In addition, there will be content on Twitter, Facebook, and even other channels possibly. Find me at @colormenurse on Twitter and join the conversations!

This will be an amazing event, coming only once every 4 years, and each Symposium has many dynamic, passionate health care leaders from around the world. Attendees this year are coming in from Germany, Switzerland, Brazil, Italy and with the US a large number of states are represented.

I am looking forward to seeing many of you next week and together with you working  to advance healthy workplace cultures for those receiving care, and for those who work there.

In my career as change leader, I have constantly paid attention to what worked – and done more of that.

I’ve paid attention to what didn’t work – and tried to avoid that in the future.

A tactic for change that I’ve long been aware of is reaching outside the bounds of one’s own work area, and making connections with people who do different kinds of work. Finding common values and shared tactics with those people whose work is different from mine. Learning from their perspective on these shared values has been invaluable.

Oftentimes people in other areas have already invented this or that wheel, that I can use to get where I’m going faster (without having to invent it myself).

Much of the literature I’ve absorbed and learned from is written for a non-nursing audience – it was written for general business usually. Or sometimes was from other areas of the health care industry.

By reaching across the distance and making connections with others who share our goals, the work we can achieve together increases exponentially.

The CHCM International Relationship-Based Care Symposium will be that process, an accredited program curated specifically for leaders who want to achieve all they can in their careers.

We hope all of you attend who are able, and for those of you who can’t we will make available the materials and information as possible. It won’t be sufficient to create the experience and the relationships gained by attending, but we’d like to expand the positive outcomes in all ways possible!

Stay tuned, and if you have been able to see your way clear to attend just recently – it’s not too late to sign up!

Recent travels: UC-Davis – among the best of the best! May 23, 2017

I had the pleasure of visiting UC-Davis recently, and it was delightful as always to experience the culmination of so much of our shared vision of an optimal health care system.

Nursing here actually fits something I wrote years ago, a reprise of Judy Chicago’s “Merger: A Vision of the Future”

Here is that actual piece of hers:

And then all that has divided us will merge | And then compassion will be wedded to power | And then the softness will come to a world that is harsh and unkind | And then both men and women will be gentle | And then both women and men will be strong | and then no person will be subject to another’s will | And then all will be rich and free and varied | And then all will care for the sick and the weak and the old | | And then all will live in harmony with each other and the Earth.

Here is my health care variant:

And then a collaborative practice will emerge | And then care will be wedded to cure | And then health will come to a world that is diseased | And then both doctors and nurses will be gentle | And then both nurses and doctors will be respected | And then no person will be treated as a task or a task do-er | And then health will be within reach of most much of the time, and journeys through sickness will be periods of nurturance and care | and then the act of one person caring for another at the time when they are vulnerable will be held as crucial to the human race.

UC-Davis is among that group of hospitals that I feel very nearly reaches those ideals! Thank you for having me, and I look forward to seeing you all again soon at the Symposium!
