Nursing’s role in changing care practices and outcomes in the context of health care system transformation Stevens, Bonnie


Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by the School of Nursing as part of the 2014 Marion Woodward Lecture. Nurses are positioned ideally to affect patient and family outcomes at both the individual and organizational level. The conceptual and theoretical basis of change and implementation science not only underlies the process of changing health care provider practice but also effectiveness, efficiency, economic and policy outcomes. In this lecture, the clinical problem of acute pain for hospitalized patients will be used as an exemplar to address how research and quality improvement processes can effectively change practices and outcomes. Issues related to evidence, context, facilitation and knowledge translation processes and sustainability will be addressed.
