Abstract:
Purpose: Ineffective communication is the most frequently reported cause of sentinel events in hospitals. This study's purpose is to use a six-step "translating-research-into-practice" model (Collaborative Research Utilization Model) to generate and pilot test an evidence-based, best practice protocol for nurse-to-nurse shift handoffs. Theoretical Framework: The overall project's framework comes from theory in research utilization and Roger's "adoption of innovations" literature. Orlando's middle-range theory is used to provide rationale for the evidence-based best practice protocol. Methods (Design, Sample, Setting, Measures, Analysis): 5 evaluation research design is being used to evaluate the protocol for feasibility (cost & timeliness), usefulness (nurse adherence to the protocol, N=86), and effectiveness in improving patient ( N=180) and nurse satisfaction (N=86) outcomes on two medical-surgical, one intensive care, and one rehabilitation unit of a 148-bed Magnet-designated urban community hospital. A Best Practice Audit Instrument, Nurse Satisfaction Survey (NDNQI), Press-Ganey Survey, and Satisfaction with SBARP Survey is being used to evaluate the outcome variables of interest along a 3-point trajectory of care. Data will be analyzed using descriptive univariate statistics and change score transformations and t-tests. A p< .05 level of significance is set. Results: The expected date of conclusion is June, 2006. Conclusions and Implications: This study incorporates directions established by AHRQ, JCAHO, and the National Quality Forum to create meaningful clinician change that results in reducing the toll of missing or incorrect communication of patient information at the change of shift.
