A Tool for Getting Great Quality DAISY Nominations: View Extraordinary Nursing through the See Me as a Person Framework

A collaborative webinar by The DAISY Foundation and Creative Health Care Management

Nurses rarely see the full scope of how much their care impacts their patients and families. The huge, life-saving acts and especially the little expressions of compassion and care that nurses do every day are seen as simply doing their jobs. Nurses may take their work for granted, but we at The DAISY Foundation and Creative Health Care Management know that patients and families do not. To patients and their families, a nurse’s “ordinary” is extraordinary.

Now there is a way for nurses to think through what they do in a way that makes them more aware of the full scope of their own impact. Additionally, nurses may apply this framework to writing rich DAISY Award nominations for their nursing colleagues.

Measuring the Outcomes of Nursing Professional Development

When asked for an outcome report, all too often educators report out on their productivity: how many classes they taught, how many people attended, how many learning modules were created and uploaded.

Productivity reports are okay, but the value-added report is one that speaks to what is different in the organization as a result of the work the educator did and how that work contributed to organizational goals. During this webinar, Gen Guanci, Creative Health Care Management Consultant, describes ways to articulate how Nursing Professional Development (NPD) contributes to the attainment of organizational goals and increases the understanding that NPD is essential to ensuring that these goals are met.

Partnering with Physicians to Achieve Compassionate Care

This webinar explores the existing fragmentation of care present in most health care systems as delivered by multiple members of the health care team. Physicians, nurses, care attendants, and many others contributing to the patient care experience are all generally doing their best to serve patient needs. The problem, however, is insufficient coordination of the care each provides, often resulting in confusion of the patient and their family.

Dr. Dan Kopp, Creative Health Care Management Physician Consultant, provides insight into how and why this fragmentation occurs, and offer tools to assist in a more seamless delivery of care.

Relationship-Based Precepting:  What it is and Why it Matters

Traci Hanlon, Consultant at Creative Health Care Management, describes a precepting model that guides the day-to-day practice of precepting and articulates the critical elements necessary for precepting to be a successful component of any comprehensive orientation program.
