The Forum for Shared Governance is a clearing house for promoting and disseminating research about shared governance and similar organizational innovations that help empower nurses and other healthcare professionals in their workplaces.

The Forum is now the ONLY agency that accredits organizations in shared governance. Send an email to info@sharedgovernance.org or visit our Measurement & Accreditation page to find out how your organization can become accredited.

The Forum believes that patient care can be enhanced by innovations that allow staff, managers, and patients to share control and influence over their healthcare organizations. The Forum further believes that staff and managers need ongoing support and education to effectively participate in the governance of these organizations.

Contact the Forum to be listed with Shared Governance Hospitals Online for 2021. Eligible hospitals must have a shared governance model or similar organizational innovation referenced on its public website and provide a contact person’s email address for networking. The Forum also accredits organizations in shared governance. Find out if your institution is eligible.

Request a speaker from the Forum to vitalize your governance program.

The Forum is happy to share your evidence-based practices that have evolved through your shared governance structures and processes with the nursing and general healthcare community; these practices are posted in the Members Only section. Contact the Forum for further details.
