What is Patient Safety? Creating a Culture of Collaboration in Healthcare
Presented by Kate Bray, RN, MSN, MA, BS, Commander, USNR
One of the most important aspects of current healthcare delivery is the ability to provide quality and safe patient care. This webinar will address patient safety culture as a fundamental aspect of safe, high quality care. Key concepts include Just Culture, human error, accountability, and disruptive behavior.
Utilizing Evidence-Based Practice and IT to Enhance Safety
Presented by Sarah Fletcher, RN, BSN, BC-IN
Learn how health information technology (HIT) can be a means to facilitate effective communication among healthcare providers and their patients, while also supporting the delivery of safe, evidence-based care.
Measuring Quality Outcomes
Presented by Vallire Hooper, RN, PhD, CPAN, FAAN
How do we measure quality patient care? It is because the person can be discharged? Their lab values are within normal limits? Vital signs normalized? These measures, while important, are perhaps missing the MOST important outcomes. Learn measurement techniques and methods used to evaluate the effectiveness of patient safety efforts and target specific areas for improvement.
The NDNQI Translated
Presented by Isis Montalvo, RN, MS, MBA
According to the American Nurses Association, The National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators is the only national, nursing quality measurement program that are reported at the nursing unit level and reflect the structure, process and outcomes of nursing care. But what does that mean for the bedside nurse? This webinar will help decode the NDNQI and give nurses resources to use this important data to help direct care and patient outcomes.
Why get a Bachelor of Science in Nursing?
Many registered nurses (RNs) and licensed practical nurses (LPNs) don’t think they need a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree. But while professional nursing regulations don’t usually require workers to have a BSN, the job market does, says Gemma O’Donnell, MS in nursing, who teaches in the LPN/LVN to BSN program at the University of Phoenix Main Campus.
How the Affordable Care Act affects nursing
The federal Affordable Care Act (ACA) won’t take full effect until 2014, but it already is having a big impact on the health care system in general and on the nursing field in particular, says Pat Kiley, an advanced practice nurse who teaches health care ethics in the University of Phoenix nursing program.
5 ways the nursing field is changing
Nurses a generation ago often had different goals than those in the profession today. “Back when I first started out in 1980, there were a lot of ‘refrigerator nurses,’ housewives who worked a few hours a week to pay for a fridge or new bathroom for the household,” explains Lesley Hunt, an instructor in the University of Phoenix nursing program.
The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health
In 2008, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and the IOM launched a two-year initiative to respond to the need to assess and transform the nursing profession. The IOM appointed the Committee on the RWJF Initiative on the Future of Nursing, at the IOM, with the purpose of producing a report that would make recommendations for an action-oriented blueprint for the future of nursing.
