(2014). Wallis (2012) makes implication that the prime objective of EBP is to provide approaches that can be applied effectively to prevent, detect and provide care of health disorders. Thus, obtaining a magnet status and evidence-based projects and should integrate current best evidence from research with clinical policy and practice to improve healthcare
Its main core is the selection of the best evidence based approaches of dealing with the SSIs and grouping them into a list that can be effectively implemented by nurses. The use of intervention processes or pathways in healthcare is effective in promoting compliance since it promotes integration of practices and procedures (Lutfiyya, et al. 2012). The selected surgical EBP interventions already implemented include comprehensive patient profiling (consideration of the urgency, patient conditions, and other risks to SSIs), use of prophylactic antibiotics, appropriate skin care (antiseptic skin preparation and hair clipping), and maintenance of perioperative temperature. My proposed quality improvement compliance checklist will be adapted to all surgical standards and areas of needed improvement. Individual nurses will complete the checklist monthly to be compared to quality data.
Mastering these competencies will not only lend to success as an advance practice nurse, but also as a military leader. The ability to “Demonstrate leadership in the synthesis, utilization and evaluation of all interdisciplinary information to promote quality improvement in a health care environment” is vital when interacting with executive leadership. The information presented to key leadership must be supported by evidence based data as it will drive decisions for the organization. Regardless of if it is related to Army Medicine, or planning war fighting missions this principle will hold true in any military specialty. The second competency that resonated with me was the ability to “Demonstrate the use of informatics methodologies to advocate for patient autonomy, dignity and rights and in policy development that would support both the patient and the institution.”
EBP became more concerned in clinical setting. “Nurses use critically appraised and scientifically proven evidence to deliver quality care to a specific population.” (Majid et al. 2011) Therefore, it was important to explore facilitators and barriers affecting the effective
Let 's make this our motto for today (and always) to be stronger than our excuses, to take action even if we don 't feel ready, to just show up and start whether we are motivated or not, to just do something every day to get us closer to the life we desire, the body we desire, the love we desire, the person we desire to
One of the key responsibilities for nurses is to help the patients in understanding the medical intervention planned for them and the things they can do to assist in their case, including list of things they should and shouldn’t do during the treatment till recovery. Research has shown that some clinical quality measures are strongly related to good nursing care (NorthWestern Memorial Hospital, 2014). They way that a nurse performs each and every activity has a substantial impact on quality of healthcare. This can also be seen in the understanding of patients that a good relationship with a compassionate, well-informed and capable nurse can help in the well-being and effectiveness of the care
However, leadership and management have different traits. When considering the two categories, the former is more relevant to the current health care environment that requires the remodeling of the health care system in order to respond well to the current health care challenges. Managers control and maintain the status quo and are concerned about organizational structures and procedures in the current period (Tomey, 2007). On the other hand, nurse leaders are innovative, self-directed, self-motivated, originate, focus on purpose, do the right things, are challenged by change, are visionaries and have a future time frame (Tomey, 2007 & Geyer, 2013). In addition, nurse leaders have knowledge of wider contemporary issues in nursing and an understanding of factors that can affect or improve the profession as well as service delivery (Antrobus & Kitson, as cited in Scully, 2015).
9b. SOCIAL CONTEXT In any health care system, good patient’ outcome is very vital and necessary. Evidence based nursing helps the society to get perfect practice which in return assist both the patient and care giver in the society to achieve a set
2003). Patient empowerment is now been used as a keyword in health care industries as it emphasis on active decision making by the patients. As a nurse, I am convinced that healthcare providers should invest in the concept of patient empowerment in order to master the challenges facing modern health system and patients. According to Elwyn et al.
For optimal external dissemination, a great start could include presentations to professional healthcare organizations, like the American Nurses Association or the American Association of Acute Care Nurses. Additionally, presentation can be conducted at conferences, research events and industry seminars. By presenting the proposed project to these professional organizations, key contacts and connections to other potential stakeholders can open doors to gain more acceptance, resources and commitment to implementing the change proposal on a larger scale. The more health care professionals that are exposed to the change proposal and potential benefits, the greater the possibility of having better outcomes for every patient, and preventing the prevalence of HAPUs in the acute care
