Summary This is a practical guide for nurses and other health care professionals who wish to transform their health care systems through the promotion of caring values. It describes a model created by nurses to transform the culture of health care systems at all levels, and features specific strategies for planning and instituting change. A cornerstone of this approach is the engagement of the leadership team in implementing change and promoting intra- and inter-professional dialogue. At its most basic level, this model, the Dance of Caring Persons, expresses the fundamental beliefs that each person in the health care system cares meaningfully in unique and valuable ways, and the contributions of each person are significant to the whole of the enterprise. The book features examples of how various units of the health care system can successfully apply specific strategies to their work and describes in detail how to engage and sustain authentic dialogue among and between stakeholders. The book also includes a timetable to change a culture as well as practical strategies for transforming the organizational mission, leadership structures and processes, communication, and outcomes of the system. Chapters feature information from a variety of health professionals. The book reflects the interests of such major stakeholders as patients, families, nurses, physicians and other providers, administrators, and managers. Chapters include questions to consider and suggested resources to help with implementation of strategies. The text incorporates professional standards and essentials from The Joint Commission, ANCC, and AACN (DNP).
