Nurse managers know the value of staff accountability-it's an essential ingredient in the recipe for consistent, high-quality patient care.

Building those accountability muscles takes on new urgency as the "care continuum" becomes more than a buzz word. Accountability is now the nurse's greatest challenge, what with the increased pressure on nurses to delegate in order to work at "top of license," the ongoing need to coordinate care with different in-house professions (pharmacy, social work, etc.), and the necessity of transitioning patients to care by unaffiliated, outside caregivers.

We're developing an in-service handbook to support staff nurse accountability skills, and are in need of several real-world examples of interprofessional accountability in action. Would you be willing to submit your techniques for effective hand-offs, successful communications, or example scripts to include in the handbook? Visit our nursing blog at http://blogs.hcpro.com/nursemanagers/2015/02/interprofessional-accountability-share-your-successes/ and leave a comment or send an email if you do!

For any piece we choose for the book, we'll send you a copy of either Team-Building Handbook: Improving Nurse-to-Nurse Relationships or Team-Building Handbook: Improving Nurse-Physician Communications, our latest nursing handbooks.
