Title:
Bridging the Gap
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) Abstract: The clinical nurse leader role is the first new role to nursing in over 40 years. As such, many health care professionals are unfamiliar with the benefit to nursing and patient outcomes that the CNL will provide. Improving continuity of care, providing risk assessment for micro-systems, patient safety, core measurement and quality improvements are some areas impacted by the CNL. For nurses, the CNL is a mentor, educator, and best practice expert that is available. Team nursing is not new to health care, but our effectiveness as a team depends on good communication. The CNL is the central communication surrounding the patient that links them to all other disciplines, decreasing fragmentation in care. This impact could be astronomical. Imagine increased patient satisfaction, decreased length of stay, and improved failure to rescue rates. Take it a step further with management of high risk patients. One project CNL's will impact is a case by case education and follow up on CHF, COPD, and pneumonia patients with high co-morbidity in hopes to decrease readmissions.
