Nursing Sensitive Indicators

Introduction

YOU WILL FOCUS ON EXPLORING VARIOUS PATIENT OUTCOMES, WHICH CAN INCLUDE SAFETY, PRESSURE ULCER OCCURRENCE, HEALTHCARE ASSOCIATED INFECTION (HAIS) RATES, FALLS, PAIN MANAGEMENT, MORBIDITY, MORTALITY, AND QUALITY OF LIFE. WE WILL EXPLORE NURSE SENSITIVE QUALITY INDICATORS AND HOW NURSING CONTRIBUTES TO HEALTH OUTCOMES.  THIS MODULE WILL ENCOURAGE YOU TO BEGIN THINKING ABOUT THE QUALITY OF CARE YOU GIVE, ACCOUNTABILITY TO THAT QUALITY, AND RELATE IT TO YOUR PATIENT OUTCOMES.  THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF LEARNING HOW QUALITY IMPROVEMENT INITIATIVES CAN HELP IMPROVE OUR NURSING PRACTICE AND OUR PATIENT’S CARE. FINALLY, WE WILL EXPLORE TRANSPARENCY AND THE VALUE IT ADDS TO OUR PRACTICE AND OUR PRACTICE SETTINGS.
