Abstract:

Within most work environments, the NPD Practitioner feels they are unable to provide enough continuing education to existing staff.  This is especially true in Emergency, ICU, Pediatric, and Trauma settings, where decisions must be rapid and often based on limited research.<br /> Since the NPD Practitioner is limited in the time they have to dedicate to the classroom, the best option is to create a specialized team to provide education.<br /> The Specialized Team consists of bedside staff who are interested in optimal patient care, positive outcomes, and evidence based practice.  The NPD Practitioner and a member of leadership should help provide team focus.  The team is an advanced opportunity for staff growth.  Once the team is established, new members will apply to the team and be interviewed by existing team members.  This ensures that team membership is seen as a goal for newer staff to work toward. <br /> The team can be trained by the NPD Practitioner on existing training material and also be encouraged to create new material as EBP and patient needs change.  For example, in an Emergency Room Environment the Specialized Team can oversee training for the Trauma Bays.  In an ICU they can run mock codes and review bedside OR procedures.  <br /> This Specialized Team allows the NPD Practitioner to provide additional training that we usually don't have the bandwidth to provide.  It allows the NPD Practitioner to be involved in the current educational needs of staff.  Lastly, it allows bedside staff to feel engaged in the care they provide, the unit they work in, and the new staff they help orient.  This should all have positive outcomes on retention, staff satisfaction, and patient outcomes.
