Description: Health Information Technology (HIT) adaptation requires the redesign of individual and collective workflows, but is often evaluated using measures that fail to account for complex interactions. A qualitative study was conducted to investigate previous HIT adaptation and to provide informative strategies to assist with future HIT adaptation by nurses. Participants were asked about their experiences and thoughts about HIT adaptation. Preliminary findings revealed: increased use of an EHR is directly tied to provider adaptation of the technology; HIT that is designed efficiently with end-user input, is intuitive will lead to increased adaptation.

Intervention Effects of Cognitive Behavioral Skills Building Program on Mental Health, Healthy Life Style Behaviors, Job Satisfaction & Absenteeism of New Nurses Participating in a Transition to Practice Program

  • Marlene Sampson, PhD, MSN-Ed, RN
    Associate Director for Nursing Education, Director for the Buckeye Nurse Residency Program

Description: The well-being of healthcare clinicians is of increasing concern across the health profession. The nursing workforce, which is the largest of health professions, experiences high levels of stress and burnout due to organizational factors including job demands, lack of resources, increasing technology, demands for improved patient experience, safety and cost containment. Newly licensed registered nurses (NLRNs) experience high levels of stress due to unmet expectations, lack of confidence and heavy workloads leading to anxiety, burnout, psycho-somatic illness and job turnover. The National Academy of Medicine (NAM) has called for an increase in evidence-based interventions to quell the increase in clinician burnout, depression and suicide. The MINDBODYSTRONG Program is a novel adaptation of an evidence-based intervention which provides a comprehensive, theory-based approach to address the mental health, healthy lifestyle behaviors, job satisfaction and absenteeism of new nurses during their transition to practice.

  • Brian Sharkey, MBA, CPHQ
    LEAN Specialist, UCLA Health

Description: So often little attention is paid to the true needs and goals of the acute care hospital patient let alone their engagement in care. While we profess to be patient centered in our approach to care, there can be a tendency to put our tasks first and overlook or disregard things a patient believes are important to their health and getting well. The Wellness Bundle Steering Committee conducted a current state analysis of patient-centered initiatives, identified five wellness domains: Sleep, Nutrition, Activity, Hygiene and Comfort and established five interprofessional taskforces to address optimizing patient health during hospitalization. This work has streamlined the number of initiatives from 88 to 5 allowing more time to focus on improving patient engagement in care, dashboards have been created to track outcomes metrics and the Wellness bundle impact on overall improvement of the rate of hospital acquired conditions and average length of stay.

The Illinois Staffing by Patient Acuity Act: A Descriptive Study

  • Orin Reitz, PhD, MBA, NEA-BC
    Associate Professor, College of Nursing, Illinois State University Mennonite

Description: The Staffing by Patient Acuity Act (SPAA) (passed in 2008 by Illinois legislature) requires every hospital must have a written hospital-wide staffing plan available to the public and take explicit elements into consideration, including patient acuity, patient complexity, the skill mix of the personnel providing direct patient care and the number of patient admissions, discharges and transfers. This study compared the hospital-wide staffing plans, the composition of the committees that made the recommendations and the acuity tools or models used to adjust staffing. The results of this survey indicate all the organizations surveyed used a staffing plan based on patient acuity, but most of the committees were multi-functional committees and staffing was not their primary function. Although the costs of complying with this legislation were negligible, many raised concerns regarding proposed legislation mandating nursing staffing ratios and thus supported the SPAA.

Building & Sustaining the Lean Management System: A Qualitative Study with Nurse Managers

How Predictive Analytics Can Establish Predictable & Sustainable Results

  • Angelo Venditti, DNP, MBA, RN, FACHE, NES-BC
    Chief Nursing Officer, Geisinger Northeast

Description: When it comes to workforce management practices, health systems have been stuck using outdated practices, which rely little on technology, predictions, or analytics; typically using a “because that’s the way it’s always been done” mentality. As consumers demand explanations for hospital costs, now is a crucial time for hospitals and health systems to pay special attention to cost drivers such as workforce management practices. It is important for organizations to be deliberate in the steps they take to solve workforce management issues. A health system in northeastern United States recently made an intentional decision to focus on their workforce management. This session will provide an overview of that process and show how millions of dollars can be saved and how staff are more satisfied.

Nurses Share Their Voice Results of the 2019 Survey of Registered Nurses

Nurse Executives’ Lived Experience of Incorporating Caring Leadership

  • Rachel Stepp, APN, AOCN, PhD(c)
    Executive Consultant

Description: Healthcare reform, advancing technology, and expanded treatment options continue to improve patient outcomes. However, the changing landscape of healthcare increases the risk of patient care becoming impersonal and dispassionate. Nurses who take on higher levels of leadership responsibility are uniquely positioned to foster an organizational culture that embraces compassion and caring while continuing to ensure the delivery of quality nursing care and cost containment. In this session, the results of a qualitative, phenomenological study exploring the lived experience of nurse executives seeking to manifest compassion toward staff while balancing competing priorities will be presented.
