WHAT ROLE CAN NURSES PLAY IN THE DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS PROCESS?
Many times it is not enough to simply produce a good idea that you think may work to help patients. In order for an initiative to truly have a positive impact on the patient, you must explore the “why” behind it. This is where nursing research and evidence-based practice become essential to improving patient outcomes. In addition, recent developments in technology can help us reach our goals faster and more efficiently.
For this discussion, reflect on the safety initiative identified in the Unit 6 discussion Patient Safety Initiatives and consider the following:
THE TOPIC IS HAND HYGIENE more specifically in labor and delivery
What evidence in the literature supports your identified safety initiative?
How can the data from the initiatives success measures be used to improve your processes or potentially help another organization dealing with the same issue?
What technology modalities are, or may be, beneficial to your selected safety initiative, and why?
must be at least 150 words with at least one APA formatted reference though out the text and as a reference at the end.
