Abstract:
Problem: In today's healthcare environment it is essential that Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNS) be able to utilize strong business skills as a part of their leadership roles within a variety of health care systems. As patient advocates, CNSs must engage in decision making and analysis for selection of products and equipment which impact the delivery of patient care. In order to make the most cost-effective and patient sensitive choice, a cost-benefit analysis must be performed for clear understanding of implications for cost and patient care. The objectives of this presentation are to: provide a description of a cost-benefit analysis framework used in a CNS graduate program, demonstrate the use of the framework as an educational tool, and demonstrate direct applicability of the model in a variety of health care settings. Purpose: The purpose of this presentation is to provide Clinical Nurse Specialists with a framework for cost-benefit analysis. Significance/Justification: Organizational management skills are increasingly required of Clinical Nurse Specialists, including the ability to determine cost-effective patient care solutions. Practice Innovation: Students in the graduate nursing program learn to develop a cost-benefit model for use in their CNS practice. As part of this presentation, examples of student projects will be presented by recent CNS graduates, with additional discussion and presentation of the transition and application of their skills in cost-benefit analysis into the work environment. Evaluation: Cost-benefit analysis is important for delivery of cost effective health care as CNSs evaluate products and equipment for practice. The effectiveness of this strategy will be highlighted in this presentation. Implications for Practice: Implementation of the cost-benefit analysis in the CNS program of study in the graduate nursing program has provided students with a framework for practice, and a better understanding of the decision making processes necessary for cost-effective health care changes.
