Accelerating Positive Outcomes Through Easy to Understand (and Successful) Staff Practices

NOV 15, 2013 at 1:00-4:00pm

Positive Outcomes

Positive outcomes for residents don’t just happen by chance. High quality of care and high quality of life are a direct result of good staff paired with effective systems of care and support. This session will highlight four key practices that, when used together, create a foundational system for achieving those high quality outcomes. Individually, the practices of consistent assignment, shift huddles, involving CNAs in care planning, and QI closest to the resident hold their own merit, and when used together as an interrelated system of care, each single practice is strengthened and mutually reinforced, resulting in even better outcomes.

Join us to hear how 49 homes from across the country, including three Oregon homes, joined a national Pioneer Network initiative to take on the work of making significant changes in these practices. Learn what these homes did to accelerate culture change and quality improvement when they provided the infrastructure for staff to know residents well and communicate routinely about resident needs as a part of day-to-day work.

Learning Goals

  • Examine how well your current system fosters inclusion of everyone in day-to-day resident care.
  • Define dedicated assignment, huddles, direct care staff in care planning and QI closest to resident.
  • Identify ways to promote greater active engagement and critical thinking for improved resident outcomes.
