Discussion: The Nurse’s Role in Promoting Quality Health Care
As you have noted in this course and in your practice, nurses have an integral role in promoting a just culture focused on patient safety in their health care organizations. Determining resources to prevent error and improve patient safety can often be a battle, and this scenario illustrates how one organization makes strides to make sure resources are available in the interest of patient safety. As you review the scenario, consider the nurse’s role in promoting a just culture in your practice setting.
By Day 3
Post a description of the role of the staff nurse for promoting quality in a high-performing health care organization. Define the organizational culture of your health care organization, or one with which you are familiar, and identify the leadership style of the CEO and CNO in your organization. Explain how your senior leadership supports—or does not support—changes that require financing/budget to support patient safety. Describe the strategies you might be able to implement to move your health care organization to a high-performing organization.
Support your response with references from the professional nursing literature. Your posts need to be written at the capstone level (see checklist)
Notes Initial Post: This should be a 3-paragraph (at least 350 words) response. Be sure to use evidence from the readings and include in-text citations.
Practice Experience: Developing a Quality Improvement Plan
The Practice Experience Project Storyboard is a brief, visual summary of a completed quality improvement initiative. The storyboard highlights key aspects of a quality improvement effort by documenting the Practice Experience Project from beginning to end.
The course template uses a PowerPoint format to complete this assignment. You only need to provide two slides, no more. The first slide is the summary of your project; the second slide is the reference page. You will need to choose the most pertinent information from your practice experience and Capstone Paper to complete the Storyboard. No voiceover is required.
The completed storyboard is submitted for grading and also serves as the main post for the Week 6 Practice Experience discussion.
