Abstract:
Purpose: The purpose of the clinical project is to improve management of pain and sedation in ventilated, critically-ill patients in order to improve patient outcomes. Significance: Appropriate pain/sedation management in the ventilated, critically-ill patient can impact outcomes such as ventilator days, length of stay, patient/family satisfaction with the ICU experience, drug costs, and labor costs. Design/Background/Rationale: Our institution had previously conducted mandatory pain/sedation education in a classroom lecture format; however, what had been presented was not consistently applied in bedside practice. There was wide nurse-to-nurse variability in utilization of available medications. Methods/Description: A tool was formulated to assess, through chart review, how nurses were using pain/sedation medications. Charts will be randomly sampled prior to the intervention. A brief educational intervention will then be done in small groups, discussing classes of medications and encouraging critical thinking through participant interaction in various case scenarios. Another random sampling of charts will be done 2 weeks following the intervention and another 1 month following the intervention. Findings/Outcomes: No current findings; project in progress. Conclusions: None, as per above. The authors hope to determine if this is an appropriate method for improved nurse management of pain/sedation medications.
