Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This presentation will describe The Magnet NICHE Synergy Journey (MNSJ) study and program of care. This program was created improve hospital geriatric best practices by identifying, operationalizing and evaluating evidence-based best practices from two programs defined and recognized nationally as "gold standards" of nursing excellence. ABSTRACT: This presentation describes The Magnet NICHE Synergy Journey (MNSJ) hospital based geriatric program of care created by identifying, operationalizing and evaluating evidence-based best practices from the Magnet and NICHE programs which are recognized nationally as "gold standards" of nursing excellence. The two phase journey took place in a 500+ bed Magnet NICHE (Nurses Improving Care for Health system Elders) community teaching hospital. It began in 2003 as a pilot study and interdisciplinary clinical program on two medical units. As a result of a successful pilot, the initiative was further developed and expanded organization wide. Approved by the IRB, the second phase began in 2006 when a new 3 year pre and post intervention study of the clinical program was initiated. Two broad interventions were implemented: 1) Embed an "Age matters" standard into all patient care services initiatives and 2) Implement an organization wide Geriatric Resource Nurse (GRN) model of care. The goal of this phase is to hardwire professional development of staff, implement geriatric nursing best practices and build an effective and supportive work environment that delivers age sensitive geriatric care. The main outcome measure, the Geriatric Institutional Assessment Profile (GIAP) survey was administered preintervention (N=504) to establish a baseline, to compare to national benchmarks and one year post intervention (N=410) to measure changes in direct care RN's knowledge, attitudes and perceptions of the organization's geriatric care environment. Additional measures of process & outcomes were piloted including use of the Geriatric Competencies for RNs in Hospitals tool. This presentation will use "stories and numbers" from CNS and bedside clinical leader perspectives to demonstrate how the principles and best practices from both programs can be used to create innovative approaches. The outcome of these approaches will demonstrate how to bring evidence to the bedside and to create evidence-based continuous improvement cycles where new evidence and ongoing learning facilitating a culture of inquiry and measurement is disseminated back to the bedside. A part of the presentation will also describe year two interventions, the use of unit based analysis, trends and benchmarking from annual GIAP survey administration as well as the development of a geriatric score card.
