Abstract:
Due to the increasing health care needs, demand, and delivery systems, nurses are required to make clinical decisions and provide information and treatment "in the moment." In turn, professional nursing practice must be sensitive, relevant, effective, and responsive to the needs of individual patients and have the capacity to adjust, when and where appropriate to changing circumstances. Evidence-based decision-making is essential to optimize outcomes for patients, improve clinical practice, ensure accountability and transparency in decision-making, and achieve cost -effective nursing care. This presentation will focus on how an innovative project will support BPG knowledge translation into clinical practice for registered nurses and registered practical nurses. A clinical algorithm based on the RNAO best practice guidelines (BPG) Promoting Control of Asthma has been developed and transferred on to a personal digital assistant (PDA) to be used by nurses at the bedside. The purpose and application of the PDA is to provide a savings in nurses' time and enhancement in their practice. An on-line training module has been created to provide added instructional direction and guidance. The primary goal is to develop strategies to help link the BPG to clinical decision-making at point of care.
