Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Purpose: This qualitative nursing research study describes RNs' perceptions of the effect of RN/MD communication on the prevention of adverse events in Labor and Delivery. Background: Research findings demonstrate that communication between care providers has a significant effect on patient safety and quality outcomes. Nevertheless, little is known about the lived experience of RNs in Labor and Delivery as it pertains to the relationship between RN/MD communication and patient safety. Innovative Practice: Semi-structured interviews using open ended questions were conducted to illuminate the meaning of the lived experience of RNs in Labor and Delivery. Data verification was achieved through participant confirmation of content and interpretation of transcribed interviews. Data was analyzed using Van Manen's qualitative phenomenological method with line by line isolation of thematic statements. Outcomes: Two essential themes and nine sub-themes emerged from RNs' stories of their experiences: Relationships (personal style, listening, trust and respect) and Collaborative Management (common goals, speaking the same language, shared plan of care, debriefing and chain of command). The themes and sub-themes were linked by common threads found throughout the narratives and included: the complex role of RNs and MDs in a complex, unpredictable environment; the development of communication skills as well as skill acquisition of psychomotor nursing tasks; a culture that did not foster a learning environment; and a lack of urgency on the part of some physicians in response to RN concerns. Implications: RN/MD communication could be enhanced through initiatives that foster collaborative RN/MD management and continuous learning toward the common goal of providing safe patient
