Our VOICE: an interdisciplinary approach to shared governance.
The authors' purpose was to make public to other healthcare executives the demonstrated success of an interdisciplinary shared governance process benefiting any healthcare organization. Main components of a successful model include a conducive work environment free of distractions, available resources in order to gather information to complete a project, and committees chosen focused on high priority for patient and staff satisfaction, quality, and safety. An essential piece of the puzzle is that grassroots staff needs to own the process. The authors share the current model and discuss outcomes, success, and lessons learned throughout their decade-long journey.
