In the midst of the science, the technology, the training, and the skill sets in this scene, the core component being called for is clear communication: clear communication with patients and families; clear communication within the team. And before and after this moment, there is the need for clear communication with nurse managers and nurse executives1 that will support improved quality of care for the B-2 floor staff.
Learn how a hospital deployed a simple Lean-based mechanism to mine data from disparate sources, transform it into visual cues, and broadcast it in real time to create transparency and synchronize actions affecting the patient journey. The approach reduced wait times by 20% and patient falls by 50% while increasing capacity by 8%.
Crisis Management is especially important in this complex world filled with uncertainty and volatility. Crises are both man made (recent Boston Bombing) and natural (Ebola, Zika Virus). The Nurse Leader at all levels has many important roles in a crisis.
This webinar will highlight the bidirectional relationship between nurse engagement and the patient experience, and will demonstrate how nurses who are engaged in their work and committed to their organization’s mission are well-equipped to deliver high-quality care in a complex and constantly changing environment.
