Abstract:
The study is a collaborative between York Central Hospital and York University to evaluate a formal Nurse Mentorship Program. This program is the first in Canada to integrate knowledge transfer & facilitated application of multiple (six) best practice guidelines (BPGs) in 28 days of structured content supported by 12 days of facilitated discussion for both mentors and new hires with 3 months of dedicated mentor support through 3 months of supernumerary time for both experienced and new graduate new hire registered nurses. Information and communication technologies support the knowledge transfer strategies. A dedicated website has been established for accessing information and learning materials with online participant and facilitator discussion forums. The PARIHS framework (Kitson et al, 1998) has been used as the basis for organizing the program evaluation. Outcomes of interest are organized in relation to mentor program impact on the application of evidence or BPGs (patient satisfaction with relationships; pressure ulcer prevalence rates; documentation reflecting the application of BPGs and the extent to which pain was effectively managed); the context of the environment (cost; turnover; vacancy & retention rates) and facilitation processes (mentor & new hire satisfaction with access to information; role clarity; mentor/new hire relationships; and feedback processes).
