Next Phase: Getting the Message Out

As the Magnet writers’ group puts the finishing touches on the required document submission, which is due in April, our attention turns to the next major phase of our Magnet journey: a hospital-wide communication campaign.

Over the past two years, there have been a number of opportunities for staff to learn about our Magnet journey through participation in focus groups, presentations at Nursing Grand Rounds, attendance at the annual ANCC National Magnet Conference® and articles in BWH publications (not to mention this monthly column in Heart & Science!).

In the coming months, there will be even more opportunities to become engaged in this important hospital-wide initiative. Look for unit-based activities, contests and prizes, print and digital materials, and featured events that will serve as preparation for our Magnet site visit, which we expect will take place in the fall.

Stay tuned!
