Abstract:
Purpose: Co-presenters from an academic and clinical setting will describe an innovative collaborative project entitled, "Leadership in Patient Safety." The project's goal is to enhance nurses' leadership behaviors in promoting and maintaining patient safety. Another goal is to further advance the partnership between the Philadelphia Veterans Affairs Medical Center and the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing by creating a formal structure for collaboration that centers on patient safety. Background: Patient safety has emerged as a major issue in health care. Leadership training in patient safety, although beginning to be addressed in some academic programs, rarely occurs at all RN staff levels. Nurses are in unique positions to improve patient safety because they provide constant surveillance and coordination of care for patients. Therefore, there is a crucial need to educate RNs in clinical areas on how to become more effective leaders in patient safety on the health care team. Approach: The project uses a three pronged approach to promote a culture of patient safety in the medical center: 1) delivery of interactive educational modules to RNs that address leadership development in areas of creating a culture of patient safety, communication for patient safety, power, negotiation, team building and cultural competence, 2) building opportunities for collaborative research focused on patient safety, and 3) developing partnerships in practice initiatives for patient safety. Major Points & Rationale: The structure and processes used to implement and evaluate the project will be highlighted. Evaluation will consist of quantitative and qualitative methods to measure the outcome variables - knowledge acquisition and patient safety culture. Conclusions: This project may serve as a model for building partnerships between clinical and academic communities that aim to advance patient safety.
