Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Summary of Presentation: In 2004 the staff nurse driven education counsel embarked on a journey of "Nurses Teaching Nurses" through an interdisciplinary Grand Rounds Program. Each month, nurses from a cross section of specialty areas present a relevant topic to their peers. During the process, nurses develop research and prepare presentations with guidance from the Education Council and Education Department. This highly successful program has grown to include the student nurses, advanced practice professionals as well as community based care givers to provide a well balanced and enriching monthly program which also allows attendees to obtain contact hours for continuing education. This poster presentation will depict the process from its inception: 1) The development of Grand Rounds guidelines by the Education Council; 2) In-service provided to all nursing staff on how to research Evidence Based Best Practice to prepare presentation material; 3) Supporting the novice presenter; 4) Process of advertising to promote attendance; 5) Presentation of outcome measures related to Program Presentations to all councils. An example - Grand Rounds offering on Heart Failure included important information on discharge instructions, directly increasing compliance with this Core Measure indicator; and 6) Mentoring other facilities in our processes to replicate this successful endeavor.
