Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Nursing staff and management recognized that the peer review process could be more effective and provide better opportunities for personal and professional growth. The redesign team believed that a robust and meaningful peer review process would improve and foster individual professionalism, involvement and accountability thereby improving job satisfaction, unit morale and patient quality outcomes. Repeated hospital magnet study findings of empowered workplace structures and their relationship to improved nursing and patient outcomes suggest that magnet hospitals attract nurses in part because of their empowering environments ( Upenieks,2003c). The multi-level team reviewed evidence based practice literature and information from the Magnet Data Base, included Joint Commission National Patient Safety Goals and our hospitals Ethical and Professional Standards. The team supported by unit management and staff development revised the peer review process to address the key areas of safe patient and family centered care, collaboration, education, teamwork, quality, clinical practice, leadership, and professionalism. The revisions focused on supporting and improving goals and outcomes specific to our cardiothoracic unit. The revised peer review process is educational not disciplinary. The self evaluation tool encourages personal growth and professional development. The feedback from the peer review tool is practice focused as it evaluates patient outcomes, patient safety initiatives, promotes best practice and quality standards. Survey results show that the peer review tool is easier to use, that feedback from peers is meaningful and constructive, and that the process is confidential and professional.
