Benchmark – Capstone Change Project Objectives

Benchmark- Capstone Change Project Objectives

  1. The implementation of the project will help to increase awareness of urinary catheter use as evidenced by nurses being able to report proper indications for urinary catheter placement.

Nurses will be provided education and understand proper criteria for urinary catheter placement. Proper aseptic technique will also be reviewed in addition to standardization of catheter supplies.

  1. The implementation of this project will assist inpatient nursing staff in close tracking and monitoring for early indication of urinary catheter removal as evidenced by decreased urinary catheter placement days.

Inpatient nursing staff will be educated on tracking and monitoring of indications for continued use of urinary catheters. Inpatient nursing staff will discontinue urinary catheters once specific criteria is met by the patient utilizing the protocol.

  1. The implementation of this project will provide nursing staff with specific criteria for discontinuation and shorten urinary catheter days as evidenced by decreased rates of catheter associated urinary tract infections hospital-wide.

All urinary catheters will be monitored for appropriate indication for use as well as proper timing for removal. Rates of CAUTI will be monitored hospital-wide by the infection prevention nurse.

 

With the implementation of this project, patients will have decreased lengths of urinary catheter placement therefore have reduced risk of catheter associated urinary tract infections. This will directly affect all patients, regardless of their cultural background as every patient is at risk for CAUTI. It is essential to ensure risk of urinary catheter placement is discussed, along with including the patient in the decision to place a catheter to ensure patient autonomy. If a patient develops CAUTI, their hospital length of stay may be increased which will directly affect their ability to achieve wellness and recovery. With patients from diverse populations, their access to care and insurance coverage may be limited. It is essential to prevent extended length of stay for patients regardless of their ability to pay as hospital acquired infections affect all patients. Evidence-based, patient centered care should always be practiced to ensure safe outcomes are achieved.

 

 

 

Review your problem or issue and the cultural assessment. Consider how the findings connect to your topic and intervention for your capstone change project. Write a list of three to five objectives for your proposed intervention. Below each objective, provide a one or two sentence rationale.

After writing your objectives, provide a rationale for how your proposed project and objectives advocate for autonomy and social justice for individuals and diverse populations.

This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

Objective:

 

The implementation of a new graduate preceptorship will increase compliance with an organizations policies and procedures as evidenced by nurses being able to state understanding and provide descriptions to those procedures.

 

Rationale:

The project is based upon the compliance and understanding of how implementing the policy and procedures will illicit the care desired, prudent care, but also compliancy.

 

Rationale:

The nurses will be able to prove competency and demonstrate required tasks and standards of care outlined and regulated by JCACHO standards. (Joint Commission for Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations).

Objective:

The implementation of a new graduate preceptorship will increase job retention within the organization over a 3-year period.

 

Rationale:

The project focuses on assuring nurses are prepared and supported during their new graduate orientation by providing mentorship and a 12-week orientation with supplemental education opportunities.

 

Rationale:

The nurse will feel educated, supported, and competent as a part of the plan for check ins as well as performance reviews. This will be evidenced by he/she remaining in their current role or within the organization at the 3-year mark.

 

Objective:

The evaluation tool used to measure the effectiveness of the orientation and training program for mentors and mentees will be evaluated annually regarding efficacy and relevance to the program.

 

Rationale:

The purpose of the tool is to measure the outcome response and objectively find out if the program works for nurses. What improvements need to be made, adaptations or withdrawals.

 

Rationale:

Program feedback and implementation will be utilized to maintain a functioning program adaptable to all treatment areas.

 

Rationale:

Review of evidenced based practice, changes to policy, JCACHO standards will also be implemented into the program for continued development.
