[Research Presentation] The purpose of this project is to develop a high performance multidisciplinary psychiatric intensive care team by developing a model clinical teaching unit based on evidence based research/best practice guidelines. Currently the 14 bed intensive care unit has a RN:RPN skill mix ratio of 3:2, working 12-hour tours using a modified Primary nursing model of service delivery. Using best practice research to support a proposal for an all-RN highly skilled staff to provide optimal care to patients in crisis. The results of the proposed changes include improved continuity of care and organizational commitment; better assessment and treatment of complex, acute care issues incorporating critical thinking skills; reduced length of stay; improved patient and staff safety; improved patient satisfaction and building the leadership capacity for RNs and advancing the level of accountability. Baseline data such as satisfaction survey, LOS, restraint use was collected to measure outcomes. This presentation willádemonstrate process used to develop measure outcomes based on best practice standards.
