Robert G. Hess, Jr., RN, PhD, FAAN

The third edition of this classic text has been expanded to feature updated and comprehensive shared governance research and the latest IPNG and IPG shared governance measurement tools. The new edition provides a framework for incorporating fresh interprofessional and interdisciplinary approaches to shared governance.

Shared Governance, Third Edition,  is your complete shared governance toolkit and has more than 60 helpful tools, from policies and procedures, to decision-making aids, to templates for councils. Plus, the book incorporates the most widely used and respected tools for measuring the impact of shared governance programs on the quality of care: the Index of Professional Governance and Index of Professional Nursing Governance, created by the book’s coauthor—and founder of the Forum for Shared Governance—Robert G. Hess, Jr.

This book will help you change your culture for the better and begin a true method of shared governance. If previous attempts at shared governance have stalled or failed, the new edition provides helpful strategies for changing course and building a truly effective model.
