The end product has been a more organized approach to communication with staff. Nursing Potpourri on Paper has replaced many notes, flyers and memos formerly posted on various boards and doors in the unit. Once the mechanism to generate it was in place, a small time commitment has been needed for production and distribution. Staff response has been positive, as evidenced by verbal comments and responses to offers in the newsletter. Some nurses save each issue. Many have contributed information or ideas. The newsletter has become a solution to some problems discussed in staff and management meetings. "We can put something about it in Nursing Potpourri" has been a frequent solution to communication needs.
