Nursing and the quadruple aim:
Review these documents on nurse safety concerns and ways to mitigate risk:

Discussion Question:
Look at the policy and procedure book in your unit, department, or organization.  Select a policy or procedure and determine the type of evidence used as evidence to create the policy/procedure. Use the pyramid of evidence discussed in Chapter 11 to examine the types of evidence that supports the policy/procedure. 
Then, address these questions in your initial posting:  What is the policy/procedure you selected?  Why did you select this policy/procedure for review?  Is the evidence supporting the policy/procedure appropriate? Can you tell how the evidence was evaluated?  Why is it important for nurses to know the type of evidence used to create a policy/procedure?

Core Competencies for Nursing Leadership and Management
ISBN 978 ‑0‑8261 ‑2341‑1
11 W. 42nd Street New York, NY 10036-8002
The second edition of Introduction to Quality and Safety Education for Nurses has been thoroughly updated with an emphasis on leadership and management. The content continues to focus on knowledge and skills required of entry-level nurses in the six Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) domains. After heart disease and cancer, patient safety errors rank as the third-leading cause of death in the United States. As patients’ needs have increased in complexity and inter-professional teamwork and collaboration have become essential, only strong leadership skills can ensure high-quality and safe care. Nurses, the largest group of healthcare professionals that spend the most time with patients, are uniquely suited to lead through effective management and communication in this dynamic environment.
With contributions from nurses, physicians, pharmacists, librarians, attorneys, and other healthcare professionals throughout the United States and beyond, Introduction to Quality and Safety Education for Nurses, Second Edition underscores the inter-professional focus grounding healthcare practice today. The updated edition includes four new chapters on implementing quality and safety initiatives from a leadership and management perspective, and state-of-the-art information on quality improvement. Each chapter contains learning objectives, opening scenarios, case studies, interviews, critical thinking exercises, key concepts, clinical discussion points, review activities, NCLEX-style questions, and web resources.
New to the Second Edition:
• Increased focus on leadership and management aspects of quality and safety • Updated information from national and state healthcare and nursing organizations • An evolving clinical case study for application of concepts throughout the text • Additional patient care cases and real-life examples • Interviews with a myriad of healthcare professionals such as educators, library scientists, lawyers,
psychologists, risk managers, and many others • Four new chapters addressing nurse leadership and management of high-quality care, legal and ethical
aspects of quality and safety, delegating patient care and setting priorities, and quality improvement project management
Key Features:
• Helps nursing schools to fulfill accreditation standards for quality and safety curricula • Maps the QSEN competencies for knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSAs) for each chapter • Includes objectives, critical thinking exercises, case studies, interviews, NCLEX-style questions, photos,
tables, suggested readings, and more in each chapter • Provides instructor package with PowerPoint slides, Q&A, answers for case study and critical thinking
exercises, and more • Provides knowledge for nursing education QSEN-specific courses • KSAs throughout chapters

Nurses are at the core of healthcare delivery and their role requires both competence and leadership to ensure that high quality and safe care is provided. It is exciting to see the publication of the second edition of Quality and Safety Education for Nurses: Core Competencies for Nursing Leadership and Management. Based on the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) competencies (Cronenwett et al., 2007) and emphasizing leadership and management principles, this book is a valuable educational resource that facilitates teaching contemporary nursing practice. Nursing students and fac- ulty across the nation will benefit from the content of the book. It includes personal interviews, essential content, and study questions that promote reflection and criti- cal thinking. The book is an essential resource to learning and applying the QSEN competencies.
Now is the time for nurses to have the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and leadership to provide consistent high quality and safe care. Although there is evidence that we have made some progress in the delivery of care (National Patient Safety Foundation, 2015) since the Institute of Medicine (IOM) report over 17 years ago (IOM, 2000, 2003), medical error remains the third leading cause of death (Makary & Daniels, 2016). This is due in part to the increasing complexity and dynamic nature of healthcare, the delivery of care by interprofessional teams that demands new types of communica- tion strategies, and the challenge of integrating informatics and the electronic health record. The delivery of healthcare is not what it used to be and new educational strate- gies are needed to address these changes.
The QSEN competencies were developed over 12 years ago and schools of nursing continue to report that the QSEN competencies are not integrated into their curricu- lum (Altmiller & Armstrong, 2017). This is concerning as 24% of NCLEX® questions are directly related to quality and safety content. Since 2012, the QSEN Institute at the Case Western Reserve University Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing has contin- ued the QSEN movement by continuing to provide resources to integrate the QSEN competencies into the curriculum in the classroom, simulation lab, and clinical experi- ences. The website provides ready-to-use teaching strategies, resources, and connections to QSEN experts. A monthly newsletter and annual conference connect nurse educators and nurse practice leaders to ensure that nursing students are quality and safety practice ready and that nurse preceptors and practicing nurses are ready to role-model quality and safety standards.

The QSEN movement includes a fundamental paradigm shift: a shift from nurses not just doing their work but improving their work. This requires nurses and other healthcare professionals Plagiarism Free Papers
