Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Herbal supplement use is prevalent among diverse age groups, gender, socio-economic class and ethnic groups. This presentation will provide valuable education to healthcare providers regarding common herbal supplements, dangers of herb-medication interactions, methods to improve patient disclosure, documentation tools and patient education resources. It will also showcase how an evidence-based approach to care can improve patient care quality and safety while supporting a staff nurse's pursuit for knowledge through clinical inquiry. A Cardiovascular OR staff nurse was concerned that patients do not openly disclose herbal supplement use and continue to take herbal supplements prior to surgery. An evidence-based practice workgroup of staff nurses, clinical nurse specialists, senior nursing students and faculty developed a clinical question to identify nursing interventions that would increase patient disclosure. A review and critique of the research on this topic revealed the following key findings: 1) patients do not openly disclose the use of herbal supplements to healthcare providers, 2) healthcare providers do not ask about herbal supplement use, and 3) there is a general lack of knowledge among healthcare providers and patients about herbal supplements, their adverse effects and potential interactions with prescribed medications. Based on the evidence, this information was presented to the nursing shared decision-making councils to improve practice and patient safety. Several evidence-based interventions were developed to improve patient disclosure to decrease the potential for interactions between medications and herbal supplements. The Professional Development Council formed an interdisciplinary group including Nursing, Pharmacy, and Nutrition Services.

Staff nurses on the Documentation Committee developed an herbal supplements/alternatives screen in the...[Please contact the primary investigator for more information about this poster presentation.]
