Abstract:
Poster Presentation: In the past, the Department of OB/Gyn as well as other academic medical departments conducted weekly "Morbidity and Mortality" conferences. This conference was a forum for the medical staff to review the clinical management of patients. Specifically, the focus was on provider-related errors that may have contributed to unfavorable patient outcomes. The residents presented patient cases and the attendings offered their expertise. The environment was focused on who to blame, rather than the processes that may have contributed to patient outcomes. It did not include all members of the interdisciplinary team. Specifically, the nurse at the bedside was not able to participate in the discussion and contribute to improving the care of the patients. In order to support performance improvement and create an environment of interdisciplinary learning, the Nursing and Residency Directors changed the name of the conference to the "Practice-Based Learning Conference". They changed the format and the membership. All Women?s Health nursing leadership as well as staff nurses, Anesthesia and Social work were included. Changes to the format included a weekly review of fetal monitoring strips co-led by both nurses and physicians. The nurses are given an opportunity to listen to a literature review of specific complications. Nurses even come in from home to participate in the conference and some weeks we have standing room only! VCUHS uses the National Database for Nursing Quality Indicators (NDNQI) RN Satisfaction Survey to evaluate RN Satisfaction. The recent survey results indicated that RN-Physician Interaction was significantly higher than the national rate.
