Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Purpose: The "KEEP" was initiated to establish a series of educational learning experiences that would augment the knowledge- base and skills of the nurses at the bedside through evidence-based information presentations. This project will also enhance teamwork, collaboration, communication among the nurses, and provide leadership roles through the development of educational offerings. Research Question: Will the KEEP initiative effectively influence nursing practice, improve collaboration, teamwork, and enhance leadership roles of the nursing staff? Methods: Multiple focus group interviews were conducted with the nursing staff to determine the type and topics for the educational experiences. A summative report was produced and a business case was submitted to the nursing leadership for approval. Educational objectives were finalized for each educational presentation and continuing education credits were awarded. Presentations were scheduled every three months for a year. Advertisement included: E-mails, flyers, and overhead pages. A five item content and presenter evaluation was administered for each session. Outcomes: All 217 attendees agreed that the topics were relevant to their nursing practice. Participants requested that the presentations be increased from every three months to once a month. Four more nursing units have volunteered to take part in the collaborative educational experiences for the year 2006. Conclusions: The KEEP initiative was found to successfully engage the nursing staff in learning updates of priority clinical situations and at the same time enhance teamwork, collaboration, and leadership roles from among health care providers. Further study is needed to determine the effectiveness of KEEP to influence nursing practice.
