Abstract:
Peer review is an essential component of organizational systems to improve and innovate care. It involves the systematic review of episodes of care which, if managed differently, could have produced better patient outcomes. A number of components are critical to the successful implementation of a peer review process, including a timely, systematic approach for identifying practice issues which could benefit from peer review, the establishment of a safe, non-punitive environment for fact finding, and broad, diverse clinical input to generate system and process improvements. A large teaching hospital has implemented a Nursing Peer Review process which effectively incorporates all these components and which successfully utilizes the skills, knowledge, experience and critical thinking skills of a diverse team of clinicians to improve practice and positively impact patient outcomes. The spirit and intent of the team is found in its mission statement--to be a resource and support that will not only empower nurses but additionally will strengthen the professionalism of nurses. Enabled by its diversity of experience and roles, the team actively works to identify situations in which the delivery of care might not have met standard of care, effectively investigate all system and process issues for opportunities for improvement and develop new standards, protocols, processes, educational materials and communication pieces to increase the effectiveness of existing systems. This presentation will provide a comprehensive outline of the systems and processes utilized by this team to effectively improve the clinical care of patients and support the ongoing advancement of nurses throughout the organization.
