Abstract This integrative review summarizes currently available evidence on academic-service partnerships in the profession of nursing. More than articles, published primarily in refereed journals, were accessed. Articles were included in this review as they presented detailed and substantive information about any aspect of a nursing academic-service partnership.
Announcement Crossing the Quality Chasm: Protecting and Improving Qualitythe IOM launched a concerted, ongoing effort focused on assessing and improving the nation's quality of care. The first phase of this Quality Initiative documented the serious and pervasive nature of the nation's overall quality problem, concluding that "the burden of harm conveyed by the collective impact of all of our health care quality problems is staggering" Chassen et al.
IOM Definition of Quality The degree to which health services for individuals and populations increase the likelihood of desired health outcomes and are consistent with current professional knowledge. During the second phase, spanningthe Committee on Quality of Health Care in America, laid out a vision for how the health care system and related policy environment must be radically transformed in order to close the chasm between what we know to be good quality care and what actually exists in practice.
The reports released during this phase— To Err is Human: A New Health System for the 21st Century —stress that reform around the margins is inadequate to address system ills.
The series of IOM quality reports have included a number of metrics that illustrate how wide the quality chasm is and how important it is to close this gulf, between what we know is good quality care and what the norm is in practice. To Err is Human put the spotlight on how tens of thousands of Americans die each year from medical errors and effectively put the issue of patient safety and quality on the radar screen of public and private policymakers.
Phase three of the IOM's Quality Initiative focuses on operationalizing the vision of a future health system described in the Quality Chasm report. This collection of efforts focus reform at three different overlapping levels of the system: Recent and ongoing IOM efforts, mostly addressing the environmental level, are multifaceted and include the following.
Fostering Rapid Advances in Health Care: Learning from Systems Demonstrations As problems in the health care system became more pronounced, the Secretary of the Department on Health and Human Services asked the IOM to develop some bold ideas that could be enacted at the state and community level to respond to system ills and guide future larger scale reform.
Over a five month period, the Committee on Rapid Advance Demonstration Projects developed and released in a report a recommended portfolio of demonstrations. Learning from System Demonstrations focuses on redesigning primary care and care for those with chronic conditions, creating an information and communications technology infrastructure, making health insurance coverage available and affordable at the state level, and reforming malpractice to make it patient-centered, safety focused and nonjudicial.
The demonstration ideas are shaped by the strategic direction set out in the Quality Chasm report and seek to operationalize and test many of the ideas offered in the study. Redesigning Care Delivery The Quality Chasm report recommends that common conditions serve as a starting point for restructuring care delivery and, at the behest of the Agency for Health Care Research and Quality, an IOM effort recommended 20 such priority areas for national action in a report issued in January As a follow up to that report, an IOM committee held a Quality Chasm Summit in January where leaders from exemplary communities and national organizations designed community-focused strategic plans to be implemented at the community level for a subset of the priority areas.
A report from that summit was released in September The report puts forth a blueprint of actions that all health care organizations which rely on nurses should take.
The report's findings and recommendations address the related issues of management practices, workforce capability, work design, and organizational safety culture. Actions needed from the federal and state governments, as well as from coalitions of parties involved in shaping the work environments of nurses also are specified.
The report presents evidence from health services, behavioral, and organizational research, and human factors and engineering to address pressing public policy questions including nurse staffing levels, nurse work hours, and mandatory overtime. Coordinating Government Roles in Improving Health Care Quality encourages the federal government to take full advantage of its influential position as purchaser, regulator and provider of health care services to determine quality for the health care sector.
The vision for each of these distinct federal roles is very much in concert with ideas laid out in the Quality Chasm report. Reforming Health Professions Education Operationalizing the agenda set out in the Quality Chasm report has important implications for current and future health professionals.The Health and Medicine Division (HMD) is a division of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (the National Academies).
HMD previously was the Institute of Medicine (IOM) program unit of the National Academies. The Impact of Iom Report on Nursing The impact of IOM report on nursing In , the Institute of Medicine (IOM) partnered with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) to publish The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health.
Purpose. To discuss the current research evidence about the relationship of nursing specialty certification and patient outcomes in acute care hospitals, interpret research findings within Needleman's Expanded Conceptual Model for Credentialing Research, provide future direction for research using Needleman's model, and discuss how Needleman's model applies to vascular access .
The Institute of Medicine report, The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health, is a thorough examination of how nurses’ roles, responsibilities and education should change to meet the needs of an aging, increasingly diverse population and to respond to a complex, evolving health care system.
The recommendations in the report focus on the critical intersection between the health needs of patients .
