UC DAVIS HEALTH -QUALITY IMPROVEMENT

Background
Patient education is an integral part of patient care and the patient experience while hospitalized.From the first encounter in the emergency department until discharge, patient and families are educated each step of the way.Nurses are at the frontline of patient contact and experience, which is crucial in the education process. North 1 ED Annex is a 12-bed observation unit whose patient criteria changed twice in eight months. This abrupt change affected the unit HCAHPS RN communication scores to drop below 50th percentile.The Unit- Based Practice Council (UBPC) formed a task force to review the data and assess the best practice methods to educate staff.

Purpose
The purpose of the project is to improve the RN Communication scores by optimizing the unit culture through a set structured communication approach and techniques.

Design & Methods
The Unit-Based Practice Council (UBPC) formed a task force to lead in developing & conducting a Patient Experience and Education Project (PEEP).The group reviewed the data and assess the best practice methods to educate staff.A Nurse- Patient Communication and Education Survey was conducted and results collected.North 1 ED Annex nurses skills, teaching styles and barriers were then analyzed and interpreted.
