Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference The Productive Ward project was originally launched by the United Kingdom National Health Service, Institute for Innovation and Improvement in 2007 and aims to define how ward processes and the physical environment can impact on the amount of time nurses have available for direct patient care. This programme was adapted for use in an international healthcare system, comprises 11 modules that are structured to empower ward teams to make improvements that can impact on efficiency, safety and quality, patient and staff experience. By releasing time the ward team is able to concentrate on the delivery of safer and more reliable care resulting in improved patient outcomes. The Productive Ward encourages ward areas to look at improving internal processes, with out having to wait for hospital wide improvements to take place. The three foundation modules, Knowing How Your Doing, Well Organised Ward and Patient Status at a Glance provide ward staff with grounding in basic improvement principles. Two project leaders guided two pilot wards to introduce the foundation modules, examine their daily routines, frequent procedures and processes and then helped to rebuild them safely, more efficiently and gave them more time to care. We were able to achieve improved patient safety, staff job satisfaction and measurable outcomes, as well as facilitating safe and timely discharges. Education sessions on the application of lean thinking enabled staff to stand back and challenge their work practices and how they manage their working environment.
