Abstract:
Eliminating preventable harm is a priority in patient safety today. Participants will learn how four rural nursing homes identified those "must have" evidence based gerontological nursing practices (or ALWAYS practices) and those negative clinical outcomes to avoid (or NEVER outcomes) to guide an effective quality program. Strategies to implement, evaluate and sustain effective quality programs for nursing home settings will be provided. Tips for benchmarking and measuring quality outcomes, strategies to implement evidence based practice and tools to evaluate and sustain quality outcomes using the Plan-Care-Sustain framework of the ANC Model will be offered. Unique features of The Model include engaging the resident, the residentÆs family and the health care team in evaluating desired clinical outcomes and preventing harm. Six core concepts guide The Model's effectiveness: engagement, education, accessibility, consistency, evaluation and communicating results. The ANC Model framework offers immediate opportunities to the gerontological nurse to implement effective quality programs that achieve best practice results and promotes resident safety in nursing homes.
