Abstract:
Workplaces now and in the future are strongly concerned with providing quality care to patients. Explorations of satisfaction with providing quality patient care have most traditionally been accomplished through the lens of specific professions. Our interdisciplinary research group is investigating quality of acute care from multiple perspectives. The larger study includes baseline data, knowledge translation with the units and quality improvement strategies, followed by post intervention follow-up. For the baseline data, a mixed methods approach was used to gather perceptions of patients with four tracer conditions as well as registered and practical nurses, therapists, physicians, and administrators who interact with those patients. All respondents were surveyed and all except the patients also had the opportunity to participate in focus groups. Baseline data suggests that nurses' satisfaction with providing quality care to patients is highly correlated with distress, professional equity, cohesion, empowerment, supervisory support, leadership, and organizational culture. Similar results were found among physicians, therapists and other health professionals. In this presentation, the baseline data will be presented, along with plans for engaging decision makers in knowledge translation and transfer processes in implementing actions for improvement using these data.
