“Strategic planning is the process by which members of an organization envision its future and develop the necessary procedures and operations to achieve that future.” Pfeiffer, Goodstein, Nolan, 1986 and Rothwell, 1989
Strategic planning is also “a process of defining the values, purpose, vision, mission, goals and objectives of an organization. Through the planning process, a jurisdiction or agency identifies the outcomes it wants to achieve through its programs and the specific means by which it intends to achieve these outcomes.”
In order to carry out of St Mary’s mission, aims and objectives the service setting should have updated care plans for residents, which meet their needs in all areas of their lives. I have discussed with my staff members during our staff meeting how important it is to update our residents care plan, report immediately changes that they encounter with the residents such as mobility, skin integrity, appetite, etc update and record monthly observations.
