[Leadership session research presentation] The AACN Synergy Model was developed in the 1990s by the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses. The Synergy Model is a conceptual framework for designing practice and developing the competencies required to care for patients. The model has far reaching implications for the practice of nursing and other health care professions. This framework can enhance clinical experiences for students and provide a framework for the delivery of patient care. The use of the model for clinical practice will be discussed. The model is based upon five assumptions: 1) Patients are biological, social, and spiritual entities who present at a particular developmental stage, 2) The patient, family, and community all contribute to the context for the nurse-patient relationship, 3) Patients are described by 8 characteristics that are connected and contribute to each other without one being viewed in isolation, 4) Nurses can be described on a number of interrelated dimensions, and 5) A goal of nursing is to restore a patient to an optimal level of wellness and to support death as an acceptable outcome. Each patient brings a unique set of characteristics to the health care situation. Among many characteristics that are present, eight are consistently seen in patients. These eight characteristics are resiliency, vulnerability, stability complexity, resource availability, participation in care, participation in decisions making, and predictability. The nurse characteristics include eight competencies that reflect an integration of knowledge, skills, and experience of the nurse. The competencies include: clinical judgment, advocacy, caring practices, systems thinking, facilitation of learning, collaboration, response to diversity, and clinical inquiry.
