Quality improvement and patient safety initiatives

  

Quality Improvement and Patient Safety Initiatives

The vice president of nursing, Dr. Sasha Mendez, has had a lot of complaints from patients and their families about the difficulties they experience navigating the system at her organization; e.g., going from the E.R. to admissions. Dr. Mendez’s nursing specialty area is psych/mental health. As such, she is very concerned about the stress this is causing the patients.

What are the macro systems that are affecting patient satisfaction at Dr. Mendez’s facility? What micro systems should she also analyze to look at how the patient moves through—from entry, to possible admission, to possible discharge? How do these systems relate? What impacts each system?

The concepts presented in Week 8 serve as a foundation for this week as you continue to look at factors within an organization’s environment that are barriers and facilitators for implementing change. In this Discussion, you examine the macro and micro systems within the organization (of your practicum setting) and identify changes that may need to take place to facilitate quality improvement and achievement of patient safety outcomes.

To prepare:

  • Reflect on the issue you have been addressing      through your EBP Project.
  • Identify the macro and micro systems that      influence the issue. Review the McClusky and Middleton (2010) article for      an example of this process (See attached file).
  • Determine the desired outcomes of resolving the  EBP Project issue and how resolving it will improve quality and patient     safety. (Note: Next week you will evaluate these outcomes. You may      want to view the Week 10 Discussion as you prepare.)
  • What procedures/processes would need to be      modified to achieve the desired outcomes?

Post your PowerPoint presentation

By tomorrow Tuesday 10/23/18, in APA format and include 3 scholarly references from the list of required readings below, develop a 5-slide Microsoft PowerPoint presentation for the business unit team and leadership within the organization, sharing your issue, strategies for resolving the issue, and how it will improve quality and patient safety. 

Note: The purpose of the presentation is to persuade the business unit team and leadership to accept your recommendations.
