Abstract:
Background: In the context of increasing patient complexity and acuity, bridging the gap between education and practice can be challenging. Further, evidence has shown that careplans aren't consistently complete nor are nursing policies strictly adhered to. In response, "Nursing Rounds" were implemented by clinical nurse specialists (CNSs) on in-patient units. Methods: Nursing Rounds occur once to twice weekly and are a forum for CNSs and nursing staff to discuss patients together, focusing on gaining a more in-depth understanding of patients' care needs. It is an opportunity to review careplans, engage in early discharge planning, troubleshoot any arising issues, reinforce the use of risk assessment tools, and integrate relevant evidence and hospital policies to the patient situation. It is also an opportunity to assess the staff's learning needs and strengths, as well as any safety and quality issues. Preliminary Findings: Preliminary findings suggest that Nursing Rounds promote better continuity of care, as well as the development of individualized careplans. A number of near-misses were also identified during Rounds, as well as ideas for further intervention and consultation. Conclusion: Nursing Rounds are an innovative strategy to bridge the gap between education and practice that has potential to be used across settings.
