Abstract:
Purpose: The goal of this project was to develop a strategy to introduce the concepts of Relationship-Based Care (RBC) to oncology nurses and integrate them into nursing practice. Significance: It became apparent that a theoretical framework would serve to pull the mission, vision and values together and help the staff truly 'live' these ideals. After much research and discussion, Relationship-Based Care was adopted. This conceptual framework is centered on the patient and family and reflects many of the ideals and practices already embraced by our nursing staff. Background/Design: A workgroup was charged with updating the Nursing mission, vision and values, a thirty-two-page document. The project included nurses from a variety of practice areas and positions who were able to develop a meaningful and concise one-page document. Methods: A Relationship-Based Care Book Club was started. One of the authors, Colleen Persons, facilitated our kick-off discussion and over the following months workgroup members served as facilitators for each chapter discussion. Ambassadors from all areas of nursing developed knowledge of RBC by participating in discussions and ultimately shared and championed these ideals to their colleagues. Following the success of the book club, ambassadors went on to create posters and unit activities that highlight the RBC concepts. The group decided to present RBC at Grand Rounds. Eight staff nurses came together to discuss the main concepts of each chapter through "Moments of Excellence", stories about our patients and how the concepts are lived in our everyday nursing practice. Findings: Our nurses have become "re-energized". RBC has truly united our purpose and passion of caring for oncology patients and their families. Positive outcomes are reflected in increases in both staff and patient satisfaction. Conclusions: Creating a Relationship Based Care environment and involving staff members as champions of this has proven to be effective in integrating this conceptual framework into our oncology practice. It has heightened awareness of our strengths and challenges as an organization and helps us move forward on our journey to excellence. Implications for Practice: The use of Relationship-Based Care principles results in positive clinical quality, patient and family satisfaction, staff satisfaction and retention of staff.
