The AHA’s Physician Alliance, the American Organization of Nurse Executives, a subsidiary of AHA, and the American Association for Physician Leadership have released “A Model for Clinical Partnering: How Nurse and Physician Executives Use Synergy as Strategy.” The report reflects learnings from chief nursing officer and chief medical officer partnership – or dyad – models that maintain individual roles while moving organizations beyond typical, silo management styles. Best practices from the report include: joint strategy planning, speaking with one voice by co-presenting and co-rounding, shared accountability, emphasizing dyad language, mutual trust and respect and getting to know one another as friends as well as colleagues. Building on this work, the groups plan to develop additional leadership resources. For more, visit www.aha.org/physicians.
