As a result, change in healthcare is often met with roadblocks and resistance. Rethinking Your Unit Council Structure applies the innovative FLIGHT Model of risk and change to: Determine your unit's immediate needs Empower team members to identify problems and initiate solutions Transcend elements of traditional unit council structures that hinder progress Improve staff engagement and satisfaction This book provides a solutions-based approach to determining and addressing the unique needs of your unit, hospital, or system so that your change initiatives can succeed.
