Aim: CalNOC has systematically leveraged its research capacity to add value to its benchmarking effort by examining compelling research questions well matched to its measures and methods. This paper presents an overview of key findings emerging from CalNOC first decades of funded studies. Background: CalNOC has received funding to conduct three major research and development projects. The studies included: AHRQ Grant R01 # HS11954, "Unit Level Nurse Workload Impacts on Patient Safety", one of 21 studies funded by AHRQ through its 2001 Patient Safety Initiative. Examining the impact of daily variation in workload and other factors on key indicators of patient safety, 31 CalNOC hospitals volunteered to participate in this demanding study conducted on 72 of their medical-surgical units. Findings suggest "short staffing" one week prior to a pressure ulcer prevalence study is significantly associated with hospital acquired pressure ulcers. This study also added further evidence linking nurse staffing to patient falls. AHRQ grant, AHRQ Partners in Quality (PFQ) Initiative Grant #1U18HS1370401 CalNOC launched a new phase of its work translating research into practice by leveraging its capacity for nursing quality data capture and engaging 33 member hospitals and 92 medical surgical patient care units in a research translation project aimed at reducing patient falls and fall related injuries.
In 2004, CalNOC partnered with the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation (GBMF) to assist the Foundation in establishing a baseline for current nursing-related patient outcomes in acute care in 5 Bay Area Counties (Marin, San Francisco, Alameda, San Mateo and Santa Clara) and to trace the impact of GBMF sponsored workforce, best practices and staffing model interventions on nursing-related patient outcomes in 42 hospitals. Results and Summary: Formative and Summative results from these studies will be synthesized and presented with implications extracted and highlighted. Findings are significant in terms of metrics, methods, and levels of analysis and suggest new opportunities to advance nursing science and professional practice through standardization which will expedite the accumulation of evidence and its meta analysis, as well as its institutionalization.
