St Vincent’s Private Hospital Sydney


9:00 AM International Recognition in Healthcare to Improve Skills, Engagement and Recruitment Within Your Workforce

St Vincent’s Private Hospital has developed a strong workplace culture and sustained it for 10 years. It is evident in the organisation’s 2-3 per cent low turnover rate and being one of only three Australian hospitals with International Magnet Designation. Magnet recognises high quality nursing and effectively influences the programs and strategies to assist in staff engagement, recruitment and support for skill development. In this workshop, Sarah will discuss the benefits of Magnet with reference to St Vincent’s Private Hospital’s improved data collection and increased programs to support staff to help your organisation take that extra step to meet your long-term workforce and business objectives.

What will the workshop cover?

  • Understanding the characteristics of Magnet Recognition and how it can influence your organisation’s quality professional development, support for nursing staff and workplace value to meet KPIs and improve patient outcomes
  • How does Magnet Recognition make your health service stand out? – Insights into driving compassionate care to prepare for future increased demand on services while maintaining employee job satisfaction
  • Balancing the skills, engagement and recruitment of new graduates, volunteers and those transitioning into retirement to manage shift work for all workforces
  • Improving your data collection and analysis to manage your supply and demand of full-time, part-time and volunteers
