Keep in mind that completing this TD is the key to assisting you with the Week 4 Assignment, My Leadership Development SMART Goal. Use the format below to develop a leadership SMART goal for YOURSELF, not your organization or department. The goal needs to be related to ONE of the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) quality initiative, which includes five core healthcare profession competencies. However, your assignment focuses on only two of the initiatives. These are Patient-Centered Care or Working in Interdisciplinary and/or Interprofessional Teams. One of these competencies will serve as a framework for identification of your leadership goal.
NOTE: Your two choices are Patient-Centered Care or Working in Interdisciplinary and/or Interprofessional Teams.
SMART Goal Format:
S—Specific (Who, besides YOU is involved in your goal, what is YOUR goal, and where will it take place?)
M—Measurable (How are YOU going to achieve the goal?)
A—Attainable (What resources and/or experts are available to assist YOU with attaining your goal?)
R—Realistic (Is YOUR goal something that is realistically obtainable by YOU in YOUR professional practice? Explain.)
T—Time bound (What specific dates or weeks will YOU accomplish each task related to YOUR leadership goal?)
Again, this goal is about YOUR leadership development…not a SMART goal for your department or the organization for which you work.
This week, we will begin the examination of five core competencies recommended by the Institute of Medicine (IOM, 2003). Section II of Finkelman (2012) places a great deal of emphasis on these competencies as does the Institute of Medicine as being vitally important for healthcare professionals in all disciplines. You will see that competency validation is not an easy process. Managing patient-centered care (the first core competency) is the responsibility of each nurse. Patients expect us to place their needs first and recognize that there are diversity and disparities with which we as professionals must deal. Here we go!
