Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Peer review in nursing is the process by which practicing registered nurses systematically assess, monitor, and make judgments about the quality of nursing care provided by peers, as measured against professional standards of practice (ANA 1995). Literature supports this definition and recognizes peer review as a method to preserve clinical autonomy, decision-making, professionalism, and a culture of excellence. Peer review is operationalized through various processes, including unit based peer review with case management presentations to peer review committees, problem/adverse event incident-driven retrospective quality case reviews, or unit /service line documentation reviews by Advanced Practice Nurses (APNs) assessing quality of care. The APN Council at a large medical center redesigned the peer review process in response to the changing societal demands in which the standards of nursing practice are continually challenged. In an effort to integrate a more transformative model with practice expectations of advanced practice nursing, the Circle of Nursing Care was incorporated into the peer review process. Using Hamric, Spross & Hanson's , (2009) Core Competencies for APN Practice, a peer review tool was created linking the components of the medical model of care in APN practice to the elemental nursing model of care to include the following: direct clinical practice, consultation, coaching/guidance, collaboration, research, leadership, and ethical decision making. The underlying purpose of the tool is to standardize the peer review process, identifying measurement indicators of practice to quantify the link between evidence based outcomes, APN interventions, and practice areas to improve.
