Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: Baylor's Professional Nursing Practice Model is based on the Synergy Model for Patient Care. This model guides practice and decisions by linking intentional nursing actions with outcomes. Synergistic practice makes a difference for patients, nurses, and organizations. ABSTRACT: Professional nursing practice occurs in a healthy work environment where patient needs are assessed and matched to nursing competencies. This synergy results in Safe Passage for patients. To achieve this goal, we have based our professional nursing practice model on the Synergy Model for Patient Care and combined this with the Healthy Work Environment Standards and key nursing practice principles. We are translating that model into reality throughout patient care delivery and overall operations. Our purpose is that this is the framework by which we approach practice, make decisions, and chart our course. To make this model visible we have translated the model such that is an integral thread throughout everything we do. A major initial project was the creation of ASPIRE (Achieving Synergy in Practice through Impact, Relationships, and Evidence), our professional nursing advancement program. This outcomes-based program addresses the various components of our model and emphasizing the unique contribution that nurses make to patients and families through intentional nursing actions. The impact of ASPIRE is through its measurable outcomes. Our model has served as a framework for developing tools such as charge nurse and preceptor evaluations and defining parameters for critical patient handoffs like shift report. We are making strides to synergize other important support practices including orientation with content re-structuring to demonstrate how we fulfill the expectations of our practice model and work to achieve Safe Passage. Another example is Nursing Grand Rounds which uses a case study approach and discusses the needs of patients and required competencies of nurses as defined by the model. Our program of nursing research focuses on studies that support and advance Safe Passage for patients. Studies provide foundational information to explore patient, nurse, and work phenomena and lead to more complex studies again demonstrating how we are translating our practice model into reality. By using this framework to link intentional nursing actions with outcomes, we are demonstrating how synergistic professional nursing practices makes a difference for patients, nurses, and organizations, creates Safe Passage, and move us to possibilities. This model has been adopted by nursing across our entire healthcare system and is congruent with its vision and mission. REFERENCES: Hardin, S.R. & Kaplow, R. (2005).
