Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: The concept of peer review is interpreted in a multitude of ways. The most traditional application within the nursing profession is peer feedback regarding performance, usually in association with annual performance appraisal. More recently, nursing has mirrored medical colleagues to complete peer review in response to quality of care issues. For more than 25 years, an academic, community Magnet organization has identified peer review as one of six components in their shared governance model and has implemented diverse peer evaluation feedback mechanisms. For example, a highly functioning peer review council on a critical care unit offers members shared responsibility with the unit director to prepare and communicate annual staff performance appraisals; as council proficiencies grew, members subsequently developed a conflict resolution process to resolve work relationship issues and enhance clinical practice. Recognizing the opportunities for peer review in response to an identified concern regarding nursing care, the organization developed a scholarly approach to peer review that serves to identify and analyze quality of care issues. This structured format was recently detailed in a peer reviewed publication and is recognized nationally as a best practice model. This session will detail the peer review literature and a compendium of peer review methods utilized successfully by the twice designated Magnet facility. Learners will gain pragmatic strategies to create a culture of inquiry and passion for peer evaluation that will promote professionalism in their setting through increased accountability and self-regulation of nursing practice.
