Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Therapeutic hypothermia is emerging as a standard for care for infants affected by birth asphyxia and diagnosed with Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy. Our neonatal unit implemented this care practice in 2008, through the leadership of a staff nurse partnering with a physician as champion. The process began with benchmarking and research of the current literature on the practice. Based on the information she obtained, a guideline, eligibility criteria and a physician order set were developed. Due to the low number of expected patients who would receive this intervention it was determined that a small group of nursing staff would be caring for these infants. It was determined that team members would be trained via simulation based learning. Members participated in realistic scenarios where they maintained the equipment, cared for a mannequin patient, and completed a debriefing facilitated by the nurse champion. The nurse champion continues to train new team members, update the guideline as needed, and maintain competency of existing members. This project was implemented in a short time frame with the enthusiasm of a staff nurse who was empowered by physicians and nurse leaders.
