Abstract:
Problem and significance: A large medical center instituted a dyad model, which was derived from a presentation nursing leadership attended. The model pairs a nurse manager with an advanced practice registered nurse (APN) or clinical practice partner (CPP), formerly known as a nurse educator in every hospital unit (thus the term dyad). Some units already operated under this type of model, while others did not. Hypotheses, overall questions, objectives: Two groups were surveyed: the first group was those who participated in the dyad and their respective directors. The second group was RNs and PCAs of the units where an APN or CPP did not exist prior to the implementation of the dyad model. The questions were: "What were the perceptions of the RNs and PCAs, MCO, APN, CPP and directors of the dyad model?" and "Has the implementation of the model made a difference?" Design and methods: Advanced Practice Nurses, Nurse Managers and Clinical Practice Partners will complete a 14-item survey with four questions utilizing a five point Likert scale, three open-ended questions and five demographic information questions regarding their satisfaction about working in the model and the impact the model has made on themselves and the unit. Likewise, RN's and PCA's associates working on those units without an APN, CPP will complete a similar survey regarding the perceptions of the model and the impact the model has made on the unit. Setting: Large medical center in the Midwest. Participants/human subjects protection assurance: The study will be conducted on selected units where the unit did not have an Advanced Practice Nurse or Clinical Practice Partner in place prior to the implementation of this model. The members of the dyad and their respective directors were surveyed. All survey data is kept confidential/anonymous with the only exception being a unit identifier. Both researchers completed the National Institute of Health Human Participants Protection Education for Research Team online course. Interventions: Evaluating the dyad model 12 months post implementation. Study results/ outcomes: Pending, results anticipated late Fall 2004. Conclusions/Implications: Pending, results anticipated late Fall 2004. Anticipated implications for nursing are based upon the fact that a modified dyad model already existed in some clinical areas. Pairing clinical experts with leadership offers collaborative opportunities such as budget, staff development, and clinical excellence. With hospital, magnet designation being sought increasingly more by healthcare facilities; the roles of leadership and clinical experts are increasingly challenged. Additional improvements that should be reflected include nurse/physician partnership, nurse recruitment and retention and improved processes and unit based education. This evaluation adds support for a house-wide implementation of the Dyad model for additional APN, CPP coverage.
