Abstract:
Background and Purpose: CMS core measurements are vital to improving patient outcomes and are closely linked to hospital reimbursement and hospital quality initiatives. However, nursing students may not recognize or appreciate the importance of core measures or nursing's role and responsibility related to core measures until after employment as a GN. This education-practice gap was identified new graduates by one of the community hospitals where are hired and the education manager and university collaborated to develop an initiative to address the education-practice gap. The purposes of this initiative are three-fold: a) to provide the foundational concepts and skills related to CMS core measures to junior-level BSN students to aid in the early demonstration of knowledge and skills; b) to support RN role development related to hospital quality initiatives and CMS reimbursement; and c) to support the hospitals ongoing efforts to ensure high-quality patient outcomes and adherence to CMS core measures. Methods: A convenience sample of 38 undergraduate pre-licensure, junior-level BSN students the first adult health course were selected for the teaching-learning module. Students will be introduced to the key concepts through an interactive lecture provided by the hospital education manager. Print resources and learning tools will be provided to students and clinical faculty. In the clinical setting, students will be assigned patents with the targeted core measure diagnoses and complete self-directed chart review using the provided learning tools. Students will lead team-based post-conference discussions in the assigned clinical rotations highlighting core measure discoveries. Students will also incorporate a journal entry into the ongoing clinical reflective journal summarizing the RNs role in relation to core measure adherence. Clinical faculty will ensure that key concepts of the module are identified and discussed for each core measure. In the classroom setting, a delayed post-test will be used to measure cognitive learning at the application and analysis levels.
Findings: A multiple-choice and short answer quiz on the module has been developed to evaluate learning of the 38 students. Data collection is scheduled for December 8, 2009. Discussion: Nursing plays a vital role in ensuring quality patient care and nursing participation in quality initiatives is directly related to the hospital's bottom line. Early demonstration of knowledge and skills in quality initiatives such as CMS core measures aids in the development of professional nurses and can support the hospitals ongoing efforts to provide quality outcomes and adherence to CMS core measures leading to improved CMS reimbursement. This initiative began in September 2009 and is scheduled to be completed by December 2009 for evaluation. The outcomes are intended to support ongoing collaboration between the hospital and university and to support the purposes of the initiative as described above.
