Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Demographic changes have made older adults the core business of health care. Older adults have special needs that are not being addressed and the safety and quality of hospital care need to be improved. With less than one percent of practicing nurses certified in gerontological nursing, innovative strategies are needed to achieve excellence in patient, nursing & hospital outcomes. One strategy to achieve expertise in clinical nursing practice is to develop bedside resource nurses in geriatrics, pain, skin and infection control. This approach has been utilized by a growing number of hospitals. A synthesis of the evidence describing resource nurse models of care, their essential components and evaluation of outcomes is provided. The NICHE (Nurses Improving Care To Health System Elders) Geriatric Resource Nurse model of care is designed to improve geriatric expertise through hardwiring professional development of bedside nurses, enhancing role development, facilitating certification, implementing geriatric evidence-based practices and creating a work environment that delivers age-sensitive geriatric care. A description of one hospitals' experience in implementing this model of care will be shared. Evidence was applied during development and evaluation of the model using concepts from Communities of Practice, clinical expertise in nursing practice (Benner) and the Forces/Essentials of Magnetism. Key best practice interventions for implementing a resource nurse model of care are described.
