Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Background: Being a magnet hospital, our nurses are interested in using research results to update best practice for their clinical settings and improve the quality of patient care. The OB Clinic provides comprehensive services for medically underserved women. Postpartum depression is associated with adverse effects on the mother-infant relationship. Poor, young and minority women are at the greatest risk for developing postpartum depression. OB clinic nurses recognized the need to incorporate the assessment of postpartum depression into the practice. A 2-stage process was implemented to improve the quality of care. Research stage 1) Use Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS, ? = .85) as screening tool. Both English and Spanish versions were available. 2) All nurses were involved in data collection. 3)Total 257 women were included in the study. The majority were Hispanic (90.3%), 22% reported a risk EPDS scores >12. Violence exposure and previous history of depression were the leading risk factors of postpartum depression Change practice stage The staff and collaborative practice committee discussed the research results and decided to use EPDS for every postpartum visit. Practice changes included: 1) Revision of prenatal and postpartum assessment tool. 2) Providing culturally appropriate resources and education materials, social workers referral and onsite psychologist service. 3) Training of nurses to master the use of EPDS. Discussion: This is an example of how nurses used evidence-based practice to improve quality of care and reflects Forces of Magnetism. The experiences learned from this process can be extended to build upon other evidence-based practice changes. [Please contact presenter for more information.] References: Gazmararian J. et al.
