Abstract:
Federal agencies (CMS), national interest groups (IHI) and state Departments of Health have issued heightened alerts about the importance of preventing pressure ulcers. Although health care providers understand the importance of demonstrating measureable outcomes in this nursing-sensitive indicator, what is not clearly defined is how to make a difference in the transition of care across provider domains. Since it's formation in late Fall of 2006, Partners for the Prevention of Pressure Ulcers has grown from a grass-roots, county-wide collaborative to a state-wide best practice for synergistic collaboration that is demonstrating improvement in agency measurements. The benefits have grown beyond bedside benchmarks to include information sharing, cross-provider training, standardization of data collection, and improved communication. Each representative of the Partners confirms that the whole is much greater than the sum of the parts contributed to this collaborative. This presentation will explore the individual contribution of each partner, current initiatives and the scope of planned projects envisioned by this group demonstrating excellence in collaborative nursing practice for improved patient outcomes.
