Abstract:
PURPOSE: To facilitate learning, foster success, and increase understanding of frequently seen health issues and medical therapies and protocols in the Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU) Description The Medical Intensive Care Unit has a diverse population with multiple medical problems and co morbidities. During expansion from twelve beds to twenty, staff size increased significantly. To increase the knowledge level of novice ICU nurses and ease the transition into MICU the unit based education committee developed an education plan to further enhance orientation. Mentors picked a topic in which he/she had clinical expertise and developed a one hour educational program. The presentations were combined and bound in a workbook for lecture attendees. Finally, dates were chosen for a lunch and learn inservice for each topic. The members of the education committee covered nurse's assignments to help facilitate attendance at the entire session and create a learning environment in which the attendee could focus on the presentation without interruption and ensured optimal care of the patient. Continuing Education Contact Hours (CECH) were provided to each attendee after completion of the program. EVALUATION: To date, 11 sessions have been held. Attendance has ranged from 8-14 staff members. In addition, the physician assistants have started to attend. Feedback from staff has been enthusiastic and positive. Evaluations have revealed the lunch and learns helped to foster confidence in nursing practice and increase understanding of more complex patients. In addition, several staff members have expressed interest in presenting and have sent the committee topics for future consideration. Feedback from staff unable to attend due to schedule prompted the committee to video tape the sessions to make available to all.
