Prior to evidence-based practice, policies and procedures were reviewed annually or even triennially to ensure that they reflected current practice and demonstrated adherence to regulatory standards. With the publication of the Institute of Medicine report, a shift to operationalization of best evidence practices, formal statements, and frameworks for care has gained increased importance. Processes for policy and protocol development and revision are now based on the inclusion of best evidence, clinician expertise, and patient values or preference...

BACKGROUND: The growth in the number of older adults in the United States requires appropriately prepared health care providers at all levels who will be able to effectively care for this population. First-line caregivers such as certified nursing assistants (CNAs) need education and training in end-of-life care so they can provide high-quality care for residents and families in the long-term-care (LTC) setting. METHOD: CNAs were recruited from an LTC facility in western New York to attend an educational intervention consisting of six 45-minute sessions on various topics selected by the researchers using the curriculum from the Core Curriculum for the Hospice and Palliative Nursing Assistant...

As the population ages, preserving the remaining ability of residents is emphasized in nursing homes. Establishing the nursing knowledge of nursing home-specific practice should be included in the continuing education of new nursing home nurses. This study developed a practical guide map for preserving the remaining ability of nursing home residents by analyzing 144 residents' case data pertaining to the nursing care provided by 19 nurses skilled in nursing homes, as well as conducting a literature review. From the collected data, 236 nursing diagnoses were given to the 144 cases...

Big data is a big topic in all leadership circles. Leaders in professional development must develop an understanding of what data are available across the organization that can inform effective planning for forecasting. Collaborating with others to integrate data sets can increase the power of prediction. Big data alone is insufficient to make big decisions. Leaders must find ways to access small data and triangulate multiple types of data to ensure the best decision making. J Contin Educ Nurs. 2017;48(2):60-61...

BACKGROUND: This quasi-experimental research study used two similar nursing units to test the effects of teach back on Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) scores. METHOD: A pretest-posttest design tested 24 nurses' knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs about teach back. Education specialists provided a 1-hour teaching session on teach back to all nurses in the intervention unit. RESULTS: A significant improvement in knowledge scores in the pretest-posttest was found using paired t tests (p = ...

BACKGROUND: Dedicated education units (DEUs) have been well established throughout the country as a means of developing clinical skills in nursing students. In a DEU, maintaining an adequate number of well-prepared clinical nurse preceptors is essential for unit sustainability and effective student perception. METHOD: This study was a quasi-experimental design using self-reported survey data. A comparison analysis was conducted using the initial results of the Revised Professional Practice Environment (RPPE) survey (i...

BACKGROUND: Research on newly graduated nurses' competence development and associated factors is relatively scarce. METHOD: Data for this longitudinal, descriptive, correlation study were collected during 2012-2014 from 318 Finnish nurses to explore their competence development during the first 3 years after graduation and to estimate the extent to which given work-related factors predicted change in competence. Data were analyzed using NCSS 10 statistical software...

The aim of this project was to evaluate the effectiveness and outcomes of a redesigned newly licensed nurse orientation program. A unique aspect of this program was an end-of-orientation simulated four-patient assignment that was designed to assess five categories of critical thinking: prioritization and delegation, problem recognition, clinical decision making, clinical implementation, and reflection. Newly licensed nurses' critical thinking was measured by the Advisory Board's Critical Thinking Diagnostic tool at 10 weeks, 6 months, and 12 months...

Nurse educators often do not have time or a space to discuss ideas about effective teaching. To address this issue, an instructor at one school of nursing initiated Cookie Swap, a bimonthly, school-wide e-mail featuring stories about teaching strategies and tools used in face-to-face, online, and clinical courses.
