Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Increasingly Magnet Institutions are implementing a peer review process designed to facilitate self assessment, strengthen professional nursing practice and improve patient outcomes. Traditionally the concept Peer Review was met with some trepidation in our setting despite assurances that peer review was designed to improve nursing practice. Direct care nurse leaders in our institution reshaped our approach to peer review and maintained professional accountability by placing more emphasis on collective learning and unit based action. Presenters will describe their experience in Taking the Sting out of Peer Review by convening a Professional Practice Review Committee and establishing appropriate rules of engagement for use during the process. Findings from our inaugural professional review revealed the need for more specific evidence based guidelines for ordering EKGs at Triage and improved assessment and documentation of patients presenting to the emergency room with chest pain. Staff are currently working to revise guidelines, implement widespread education and document related outcomes resulting from the change in practice.
