Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Peer review can be a positive, growth-producing experience for the nursing staff. To strengthen peer review in this Magnet organization a task force was created comprised of staff nurses and managers to develop a more positive way of influencing and giving feedback on professional practice. The task force developed a process where small groups of nurses meet quarterly to review, support, and provide critique to peers regarding their professional goals and clinical practice. To systematically understand the structure, process, and outcomes of this peer review process, a research study was developed comparing the results of the units implementing this new process with units that did not implement the process. IRB approval was received. Nurses from both the experimental and control groups received education specific to goal setting, providing feedback, and clinical coaching, and both groups received a pre and post questionnaire. Data collected included demographic information, certification status, and educational preparation. Outcome measures were also obtained including perceptions of clinical practice, professional development, and peer review. The results of the research study will be described along with the impact it had on peer review in this organization. This process has been so successful it has spread to other units and other nursing job classifications. The outcomes suggest that when nurses convert to a more positive form of peer review in an acute care setting it results in greater professional development and strengthened clinical practice.
