Getting started is the hardest part! Establishing clear goals and objectives, roles to invite, tools, resources, scheduling considerations and more are addressed in this brief presentation.
Routine observation will highlight trends and uncover issues. However, often such issues are at the intersection of several different products. What then? An example of a pilot trial and successful intervention are discussed.
'One and done' is not a pathway to lasting change. This presentation will discuss why routine monitoring is important to ensure sustained results. Strategies on how to complete this efficiently will be discussed.
Our Wednesday Workshops were designed to give you quick, actionable tips from industry experts to help you to improve outcomes in your facility. Register for any single event or a full series as it suits your needs or schedule.
Vascular Access Jamboree (noun) vas·cu·lar ac·cess jam·bo·ree - a large, festive gathering of nursing unit leadership, nursing professional development, clinical nurse specialists, infection prevention and industry partners collectively performing routine bedside rounding and documenting observations with the goal of improving patient care
Nearly all hospitalized patients can expect to receive an IV catheter during their hospital stay. It has been well-documented that IV failures and complications remain unacceptably high. Observation through bedside rounding is an effective strategy to highlight issues that improve patient outcomes and reduce costs.
One large, urban community hospital has been successful in bringing together unit-based staff, nursing leadership, nursing professional development, clinical nurse specialists, infection prevention, as well as industry partners - the Jamboree team - all with the shared goal of improving vascular access outcomes through routine monthly rounding. This series will break this process down into 3 short presentations with actionable take-aways.
