Impact of shared governance on workplace empowerment over time

By: Judy Mathias

Editor's Note

In this analysis of measurements (ie, staff’s caring, workplace engagement, and work empowerment) assessed before and after implementation of an interprofessional shared governance model, only work empowerment scores of staff working in relationship-based care professional practice models were sustainable and increased progressively and significantly over time.

Work engagement levels rose initially and then stabilized over time, and caring levels remained stable despite implementing a caring professional practice model.

There were statistically significant correlations between work engagement and empowerment, followed by the relationship between work engagement and caring, and the relationship between empowerment and caring.

A stronger focus on staff caring, particularly in quality improvement initiatives with leadership guidance, will be of great importance moving forward, the authors note.
