The authors describe a participative management approach was used to develop and implement a nursing care delivery model for geriatric rehabilitation. This approach led to a sense of shared decision making and established consensus among the majority of staff. An integrated primary and modular nursing model that incorporated a geriatric resource nurse role was developed to maximize accountability and continuity of care. Ongoing evaluation will further clarify the impact of this model on staff and patient outcomes.
