Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Adult patients, who undergo open-heart surgery, require extensive preparatory education to help reduce stress and increase compliance. Educational materials are available commercially, but patients and families have questions about their specific experience. The cardiothoracic nurse practitioner in collaboration with the nurses on the cardiac surgery team, developed a website to improve the education of their patients. A handbook, written by one of our critical care staff nurses was put on the website for patient/family access from home. The booklet includes pictures of our hospital entrance, lobby, CV-ICU, and Telemetry floor. Pictures were taken on our unit showing a "patient" post-operatively, complete with all of the equipment to help prepare the patient and family for what to expect immediately post surgery. Information covers the hospital stay as well as care at home. The website is currently being enhanced to introduce the patient to the surgeons, physician assistants, nurse practitioner, and nursing staff that will be caring for them during their hospital stay. The site can be accessed outside the hospital as well as on the intrahospital website Carenet which provides the nursing staff a resource for their own educational needs. The website exemplifies Magnet Force Force #11 (Nurses as Teachers) showing how our nurses are improving the quality of care they provide to the open heart patients using a variety of resources which include creative and patient responsive approaches.
