Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: Patient centered care which engages patients as partners has deep and far reaching effects for families, the healthcare team and community. This presentation demonstrates the implementation of shift report at the bedside that has improved satisfaction, quality of care, safety, outcomes, and the professional image of nursing. ABSTRACT: In a time when patients move quickly through a complex healthcare system with many disciplines immersed in the science and technology of practice, the role of the nurse has become even more crucial than in the past. As a profession, nursing is both art and science and is uniquely positioned to humanize and personalize the patient experience. Engaging patients as partners in their plan of care is a practice that has resulted in dramatic improvements in both process and outcomes. A champion unit committed to replacing a taped report at shift change with a face to face discussion at the bedside that included the patient and family. The literature had indicated that there would be benefits, but those realized were much richer than anticipated. With the off going and oncoming nurses rounding and including the patient, true collaboration became possible. From the first step of patient and caregiver identification to discussing pain and medication management, monitoring skin integrity, assessing falls risk, setting goals for the day, to planning for discharge and follow-up care, the patient is involved. The change did not come easily. Educational sessions were held where the current evidence was discussed. Nurses were encouraged to voice their concerns about the transition. Management was supportive and effectively decided that this would not be a trial but a change to patient centered nursing practice. All of this work culminated in a video created by nurses showcasing the new practice of Partnership Rounds. The video was shared in celebration of the many months work. Because so many were involved in the transition, the actual start was smooth, enhancing the work flow of the unit. The concept of nursing organization and prioritization took on a new meaning. This change in practice has proven to be instrumental in keeping the patient as the focus and improving not just the delivery of care but improving safety and patient outcomes. The success of the new practice stimulated the interest of other nursing units and created a new standard of care. The champion unit became the mentor for the others in the organization. As momentum built, other disciplines became involved. The patient partnership focus, now, is also shared in the community with nursing schools who are developing programs to redefine nursing excellence in practice.
