Abstract:
Paper Presentation: This presentation will describe a scholarly approach to peer review that serves to identify and analyze quality of care issues, in response to an identified concern regarding nursing care of a specific patient. Two case studies will illustrate a model to guide peer review investigation and formal documentation. This comprehensive peer review approach provides a structured format that allows for critical analysis of untoward patient events; generates an awareness of gaps in care from a systems perspective, thus prompting changes in organization policies, procedures and clinical practice guidelines; ensures action planning focused on legitimate and bona fide root causes; stimulates performance improvement initiatives; and provides a forum to share learnings throughout the organization. This clinical practice peer review process can be adopted by any health care organization to affect similar outcomes. Of particular note is that a literature review revealed no publications regarding peer review associated with quality of care issues within nursing. Historically, this peer review method has been utilized within the medicine discipline, by physicians. Investigation of quality incidents associated with nursing care has traditionally been done by the designated, affected nurse manager, maintaining a "silo" approach to the issue. As such, this process offers new knowledge within the nursing discipline. Learners attending this session will gain valuable insights regarding a clinical practice peer review process that not only can achieve the aforementioned, definitive quality improvement outcomes, but can create a culture of inquiry, passion for the peer review process and an opportunity for professional development and excellence within their organization.
