Although nurses constitute the largest segment of the health care workforce in the United States, their participation in all levels of health policy advocacy remains low. We surveyed practicing nurses on their current knowledge about health policy advocacy, current and desired involvement in health policy advocacy, and desired components in a continuing education program on health policy advocacy. One hundred eighteen nurses responded to the e-mail solicitation, and 84 (71%) of those nurses were eligible. The sample was Caucasian, and the majority were women, aged 45 to 64 years, and registered to vote...

METHOD: A convenience sample of 393 nursing faculty and practice-based nurses in the United States participated in a study to test the psychometric properties of the Workplace Civility Index (WCI). RESULTS: A factor analysis and other reliability analyses support the use of the WCI as a valid and reliable measurement to measure perceptions of workplace civility acumen...

Deborah Center
Interprofessional health care teams begin with team members who know themselves and are flexible, trusting, and competent to speak up to prevent harm and take action to ensure quality and safety. Often, the soft skills necessary for team members to be effective are underrated and missing in team trainings. By clarifying the expectations of team members and using tools to assess individual ability, educators can enhance awareness and improve both individual and team civility and performance. This article is the third in a series on interprofessional teams and focuses on the importance of knowing oneself to be an effective team member...

A major practice problem is that multiple handoff tools can lead to missed information, adverse patient events, and decreased patient safety. A proper comprehensive patient handoff is a key component to patient safety. The standardization of the handoff process can be a safeguard to lower the risk of adverse patient events. A pilot study was implemented to ascertain whether educating nurses on the expected procedure and documentation of the handoff report when transferring a patient emphasizing the use of SBAR (Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation) positively affected the nurses' perceptions of communication during patient transfers...

BACKGROUND: Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) are the second most common health care-associated infection. CAUTIs represent a serious threat to chronic critically ill patients in long-term acute care hospitals (LTACHs). Evidence-based guidelines have been shown to reduce the risk of infection in acute care settings but are not well documented in LTACHs. METHOD: An evidence-based urinary catheter protocol was developed and implemented across three units in a large LTACH...

Nurses undertake important responsibilities in patient care and the prevention of hospital-acquired infections. However, adherence to hand hygiene practices among nurses has been reported to be low. This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of hygienic hand washing training on hand washing practices and knowledge. The study design was a nonrandomized, quasi-experimental study, with pretest-posttest for one group. Pre- and postobservations were also conducted using an observation form on any 5 workdays to evaluate the effectiveness of hygienic hand washing training on hand washing practices...

All too frequently, newer nurses are expected to take on leadership roles without any formal leadership training or education. For nurses to be successful change agents, it is imperative that they develop the necessary leadership skills to take on leadership roles, ultimately improving employee satisfaction and nurse retention. A course was designed to engage new graduate nurses and help them to develop leadership skills, with the goal of increased confidence to act as leaders among their peers. The pilot program consisted of a 1...

Members of an effective inter-professional team must work cooperatively to blend individual skills and leadership responsibilities and achieve the best outcome for the patient. Each member of an inter-professional team contributes to the diversity of needs required in patient care. Clarity of role responsibilities is essential to improving patient care and interprofessional team success. J Contin Educ Nurs. 2018;49(8):345-347.

As more is learned about the brain as it relates to learning science, educators have more information about the inputs that make significant differences in student achievement. Although much of what has been learned comes from K-12 education, higher education and professional development educators are finding that the power of positive psychology adds value in all forms of education.
