DISCUSSION RESPONSE # 1 – CLASSMATE – DUKE ELLINGTON

During my data review project I did not encounter any obstacles.  As mentioned in at least one previous post, we had our annual CSC business meeting just after the start of this course.  Knowing what my project was during the meeting, I received feedback and ideas and/or suggestions from other administrators, medical directors, and specialty advisors and continued to receive the same from co-workers.

What is meaningful with the readings this week is that of total quality management (TQM) and accreditations, both of which coming from the same article.  As Abdallah (2014) stated, TQM is a powerful tool to create a quality of culture since it focuses on leadership, communications, training and continuous improvements.  I was initially introduced to TQM or Quality Air Force in the early to mid-90’s while active duty.  From my recollection, at the time of implementation, there were 4-phases.  Everyone had to learn QAF which was Phase 1 and if you wanted to teach QAF you had to be certified which was Phase 4.  Again, if I recall, I made it up to Phase 3, in which our “team” had implemented a process improvement.  I don’t recall all the details, but I do remember going to an annual convention in Alabama in the mid-90s competing for the Malcolm Baldridge Award.

With accreditation, most health care facilities want to be accredited by The Joint Commission or TJC.  Although, we are somewhat medical, our simulation center is not looked at by TJC; however, we have been accredited by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare or SSiH.     And finally, late last year, we have all 10 simulation sites under the Central Simulation Committee to have been accredited by SSiH.  With this, our next step or goal is to have the CSC become a consortium.

CLASSMATE: Christina Shoaf

My leadership personality is one of honesty, empathy, fairness and engagement. I use skills such as effective communication, transparency, organizational awareness and emotional intelligence to instruct, guide and lead my team. According to Stoller (2017), being mindful is a critical element of being a leader. Leading with emotional intelligence assists with concepts such as change, conflict management and collaboration.

My leadership style is democratic. I want to be known for being collaborative, innovative and strategically orientated so I can assist in delivering exceptional health care through leadership and mentoring.

In order to problem solve for decreasing medication errors by standardizing workflow, I would first discuss the current workflow with the staff. I would get their input on current workflow and ideas that they have for improvement. After collaborating for ideas with the staff who are performing this task, I would investigate best practices for decreasing medication errors and formulate a recommendation based on the current assessment and research. Then I would engage the staff to discuss the changes.
