Abstract:
Supporting Evidence-Based Quality Care in the Midst of Today’s Challenges
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001

P.I. Institution Name:Clinical Practice Model Resource Center
Healthcare providers are currently faced with extreme fiscal restraints, increasing workloads, changing skill mixes, increasingly complex illnesses, a society worried about safe care, and the severe shortages. Now more than ever we must find ways to support practitioners competence and evidence-based patient care. Clinical tools that provide evidence-based knowledge and strengthen the delivery of quality professional services can counteract the negative impact these factors have on the learning culture in every healthcare environment. A Healthcare Consortium, comprising over 90 organizations, has committed to creating and sustaining learning cultures that promote evidence-based professional practice. These organizations participate in the collective work of developing, reviewing, validating and implementing Clinical Practice Guidelines and Education Outcome Records that support caregivers in their day-to-day professional accountabilities during these challenging times. This presentation will highlight the implementation processes and show examples of the clinical tools that resulted from this collective effort. When utilized within a professional practice framework, Clinical Practice Guidelines and Education Outcome Records strengthen scope of practice competency, critical thinking, outcome evaluation and help caregivers focus on individualization and priority needs. They have bridged the gap between theory and reality for thousands of healthcare colleagues. Integrated within a systems framework they strengthen hospital orientation and preceptor programs, competency-based programs, professional documentation, automation, and quality improvement efforts. Multiple caregivers and students have utilized Clinical Practice Guidelines and Education Outcome Records across this continent for over 17 years. These tools intentionally help connect evidence from the literature to point of care practice.
