Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: More than half of all Americans with stroke are noncompliant with their healthcare providers medication and lifestyle recommendations. Successful management of stroke risk factors has the potential to reduce stroke recurrence by 70-80%. This presentation describes how one Stroke Program has used a nurse-driven innovation to address the compliance challenge and to facilitate patient engagement in their care and lifestyle choices. The Stroke Program Nurse worked collaboratively to develop a comprehensive electronic tool and process for tracking patient compliance. This tool monitors interventions, barriers to compliance, as well as care outcomes at 30-days, 90-days, and 1 year after the patients hospital discharge. The nurse gathers data either during a stroke clinic visit or telephone call with the patient. This secondary prevention initiative incorporates best practice strategies from national stroke guidelines and is a standardized care template for healthcare providers in patient management through the first year of recovery. Data are captured systematically in electronic format at each visit and become a repository for evaluating the effectiveness of interventions for secondary stroke prevention. Seventy-six percent of stroke patients received follow-up during the first two quarters of 2009. Early data analysis indicated that a healthy weight was the greatest challenge for patients at the 30-day mark (71% non-compliance), with LDL goal (43% non-compliance) second, and blood pressure control (21% non-compliance) third. This information was utilized to augment patient education by providing more thorough discussion of these topics. Our results show the crucial role of nurses in patient compliance for stroke prevention.
