 Nursing  Comments Off on Johns Hopkins Nursing Evidence-Based Practice: Implementation and Translation
Jan 082020
 

Evidence based practice (EBP) is a leading trend in nursing practice, research, and education. EBP is part of nursing schools’ curriculum, and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) requires EBP be included in post-baccalaureate nurse residency programs.The model in this book has instant name recognition because it was developed by The Johns Hopkins Hospital (JHH) and The Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing (JHUSON). U.S. News & World Report has ranked Johns Hopkins as the top American hospital for 18 consecutive years. The publication ranked the university in the top 4 of the nation’s best nursing graduate schools.This book provides detailed instructions on implementation of EBP and includes the relationship to the American Nurses Credentialing Center Magnet Recognition Program, which hospitals try to achieve partly because of its value in marketing their nursing services.No other book on the market in this price range covers this topic. Divided into three parts: infrastructure, implementation, and translation.Vignettes are used as exemplars to support chapter content.It is both a textbook and a resource for nurses in education and practice who must implement EBP.Faculty members and staff development instructors can download a PDF of a free instructor’s guide to use as a resource.

Telephone Triage in an Ophthalmic A & E (Whurr Nursing Research)

 Nursing, Ophthalmology  Comments Off on Telephone Triage in an Ophthalmic A & E (Whurr Nursing Research)
Dec 182019
 

Research in Nursing Series Formalised telephone triage is a fairly new concept in Accident and Emergency services although it has been an informal method of advising patients and health care professionals for many years. In the A&E service of Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, formalisation of this method of patient prioritisation led to a need for an evaluation of this strategy. Both clinicians and patients need to know that the decision making which is undertaken in using telephone triage is undertaken by expert nurses and that the decisions made are accurate and safe.This study explores the various conditions that present to the A&E department and examines the accuracy of the diagnosis made by the triage nurse. It also examines the decision making process adopted by the nurse when giving advice in a telephone triage situation. The book is essential reading for both A&E and ophthalmic nurses, particularly those involved in setting up a telephone triage service.
