As the largest segment of the health care workforce and the professionals who spend the most time with patients, nurses bring essential experience and insight to efforts to improve access and quality and lower health care costs. The Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action is working to prepare nurses to address our nation’s most pressing health care challenges—access, quality, and cost.
To mobilize diverse health care stakeholders and the nursing community to connect with others across the country, we have launched a new website and online community – www.CampaignforAction.org/Community. The online community offers opportunities for people to showcase their work and share the latest news; webinars hosted by leading experts across health care, business and government; discussions; a listing of Campaign for Action events around the country; and opportunities to ask questions and find resources and tools.
TeamSTEPPS for Long-Term Care was created specifically for nursing home staff, but can be adapted and applied to other long-term care settings such as assisted living communities. This release is a new addition to the TeamSTEPPS curriculum, which has improving patient safety as its goal. It includes new materials to demonstrate how to use communication tools in quality improvement projects.
TeamSTEPPS Long-Term Care is available in DVD format and includes PowerPoint presentations, teaching modules, exercises, and video vignettes that can be used to train staff. In addition, it is available on AHRQ’s Web site. To order copies of the DVD, contact the AHRQ Publications Clearinghouse at AHRQPubs@ahrq.hhs.gov or call (800) 358-9295. Copies are also available at www.ahrq.gov/teamsteppstools/longtermcare.
