Abstract:
Poster Presentation: The increasing complex nature of our healthcare system generates many opportunities for performance improvement activities, but also creates challenges for an organization trying to engage frontline nursing staff in quality improvement activities. Time, knowledge deficit in improvement processes, lack of administrative support and data timeliness and complexity are all barriers cited by staff. Finding ways to address these barriers and engage staff is critical. Data is often reported in terms which are confusing or difficult for the staff nurse to put into perspective. An example is the reporting of falls per 1,000 patient days. While this is necessary benchmarking data, it leaves the staff nurse asking, what does this mean to me today while caring for my patient? Additionally the delayed reporting of indicators does not support our model of rapid tests of change. Our organization identified key QI initiatives requiring staff involvement and devoted resources to collect and provide weekly and monthly feedback to the staff. In addition we queried staff on how best to report and communicate this data. This poster outlines the approach to provide real time, meaningful data to staff on key QI initiatives, including patient satisfaction, specimen labeling, and falls on a weekly basis.
