[Research Presentation] Queensway Carleton Hospital is using innovative strategies to effectively integrate best practice guidelines for the assessment and management of pain into daily clinical practice through multidisciplinary collaboration and intra-corporate partnerships. The objectives of the presentation are to provide participants with: a) A corporate model for effective implementation of best practice guidelines, including committee structure, communication tools and reporting process and b) Specific examples of effective initiatives implemented in Emergency and Surgery as well as other initiatives currently underway in several programs including Medicine, Childbirth and Palliative Care. At Queensway Carleton Hospital, high priority issues related to the assessment and management of pain are reflected in the corporate Balanced Scorecard, thereby ensuring appropriate resource allocation and accountability for actions leveraged to support outcomes at all levels of the organization. Accountability for achieving the strategic outcomes lies with the Pain Committee, a high performance team with representation from all clinical programs, allied health disciplines, the Nursing Research Committee, and Decision Support.áThe clinical representatives from the Pain Committee lead task teams within their respective programs and work collaboratively with nursing, medical and allied health staff to identify key issues, develop policies, implement initiatives and provide education. Allied Health representation strengthens the development of comprehensive pain assessment/management strategies. The Nursing Research Committee collaborates with the Pain Committee to develop evidence based assessment and evaluation tools. Decision Support staff assist with the development of communication tools, reporting patient satisfaction related to pain and corporate reporting to Quality Council and the Board. Conference participants will benefit from this presentation by learning about a practical approach to effectively integrate best practice guidelines into daily clinical practice.
