Course Objectives Participants will be able to: Describe the ANCC Magnet initiative and its significance to hospitals and nurses. Describe the knowledge-based information needs of nurses Identify collaborative education and service strategies to improve knowledge-based information services for nurses Identify opportunities for librarians and their library to partner with nurses to improve patient care and safety 5
Learning plan ANCC Magnet Program –History of Magnet Program & its Importance to Nurses, Hospitals Forces of Magnetismwas 14, now consolidated into 5 Model Components –For each: library opportunities Information Needs of Nurses & Evidence-Based Nursing Practice Evaluation: final questions; forms 6
ANCC Magnet Program Why ANCC Magnet Certification? Magnet: the Standard Produced by ANCC 7
Latest Magnet Film Magnet: the power to attract and retain v 8
Magnet Certification ANCC Magnet Recognition Program® Recognizing excellence in nursing services –Developed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, part of ANA, to recognize health care organizations that provide the very best in nursing care. –Seal of approval for quality nursing care –Aids in nurse recruitment and retention –Rapid growth – 7 in 2000; 300+ now /GrowthoftheProgram.aspx 9
Historical Background In 1983, the American Academy of Nursing commissioned a Taskforce to research why some hospitals attracted and kept nurses in a time of severe nursing shortage. –McClure, MM, Poulin, M., Sovie, M. & Wandelt, M. (1983). Magnet hospitals: Attraction and retention of professional nurses. American Academy of Nursing Task Force on Nursing Practice in Hospitals. Kansas City, MO: American Nurses Association. 10
Research Findings: Characteristics of Magnet Hospitals Participatory Management (Shared Governance) Nursing Autonomy & A Supportive Nursing Leadership Career Development Opportunities for Nurses Recognition of Importance of the Quality of Patient Care 11
Further Research on Magnet Hospitals Magnet Hospital nurses were more satisfied with their jobs Nurses at Magnet hospital are more likely to be certified in specialty areas, maintain continuing education & participate in community programs Strong relationship between the degree of nursing autonomy & quality of care patients received 12

17 Magnet and Hospitals: How has the research translated into the Magnet program requirements?
Magnet Recognition Program Goals (Core Values) Promoting quality in a setting that supports professional practice; Identifying excellence in the delivery of nursing services to patients/residents; and Disseminating best practices in nursing services. 18
Magnet Recognition Program Requirements Focus On: Leadership of the Chief Nurse Executive Work environment Adherence to standards Interdisciplinary collaboration Cultural and ethnic diversity of patients and care providers is recognized by the hospital Best nursing practices - evidence-based practice, quality improvement, research – are demonstrated Benchmarking against quality standards in certain areas 19

22 Magnet Model Components
The Application Each component of the new Magnet Model requires two kinds of submissions: –Evidence Documents: particular pieces of documentation such as annual reports, organizational charts, policies & procedures, tables of committees, statistics, data, etc. –Evidence Narratives: narrative statements to support the evidence with descriptions of programs, processes or services that provide examples of how each is operationalized
Magnet Components Explained
Transformational Leadership(TL) Quality of Nursing Leadership –Knowledgeable, strong, risk-taking nurse leaders follow a well-articulated, strategic and visionary philosophy in the day-to-day operations of the nursing services. Nursing Leaders, at all levels of the organization, convey a strong sense of advocacy and support for the staff and for the patient. (The results of quality leadership are evident in nursing practice at the patients side.) Management Style –Healthcare organizations and nursing leaders create an environment supporting participation. Feedback is encouraged and valued and is incorporated from the staff at all levels of the organization. Nurses serving in leadership positions are visible, accessible, and committed to communicating effectively with staff. 26
Required Examples of Sources of Evidence for Transformational Leadership Evidence of strategic planning by nurse-leaders Evidence of advocacy and influenceshow organizational wide changes, recognition and reward of innovation by nurses Give examples, from several different nursing units, of advocacy by the CNO on behalf of the staff, such as requests for additional FTEs, systems, equipment, personnel support and so forth. Evidence of visibility, accessibility and communicationshow that the CNO is visible and accessible to direct-care nurses, that nurse leaders use input from direct-care nurses, and changes in the work environment and patient care based on input for direct-care nurses.

Services for Transformational Leadership Brainstorm– more ideas? New services or changes, additions or improvements to existing services?
Structural Empowerment (SE) Organizational Structure Personnel Policies and Programs Community and the Healthcare Organization Image of Nursing Professional Development Description: Magnet hospital environments are flat, flexible and decentralized. Nurses throughout the organization are involved in self-governance and decision-making structures and processes that establish standards of practice and address issues of concern.
Required examples of Sources of Evidence for Structural Empowerment Professional Engagement - show that the structure and processes of the hospital enable nurses from all setting and roles to participate in organizational decision-making groups such as committees, councils, and task forces. Commitment to Professional Development- show how the organization sets expectations and supports nurses at all levels who seek formal education (BSN, masters, doctoral degrees.) Continued on Next Slide
Sources of Evidence For Structural Empowerment (continued) Teaching & role development-show how it promotes the teaching role of nurses, how nurses support community education activities, how nurses support academic practicum, adjunct faculty, mentorships, etc. Commitment to community involvement – show structure and processes to allocate resources to affiliations with nursing schools, consortiums and community outreach
Shared Governance: key concept Shared Governance is a management model proposed & described in the nursing literature over 30 years ago. It has a specific meaning, almost an emotional context, to nurses. Shared Governance spreads the authority and responsibility for nursing practice down to the unit level and involves nurses directly in practice decisions.
Shared Governance Includes Autonomy of Practice, Control of Practice Environment, Effective Nurse-Physician Relationships Encompasses concepts such as empowerment, autonomous decision making, accountability, collaboration, mentoring, high-quality patient care, and evidence-based, excellent professional nursing practice. (McClure M, Hinshaw A. Magnet Hospitals Revisited: Attraction and Retention of Professional Nurses. Kansas City, Mo: American Nurses Publishing; 2002.)

What Library Services? Brainstorming? 37
Exemplary Professional Practice (EP): Sources of Evidence Describe and demonstrate in 9 areas: 1.Professional Practice Model 2.Care Delivery System(s) 3.Staffing, Scheduling, and Budgeting Processes 4.Interdisciplinary Care 5.Accountability, Competence and Autonomy 6.Ethics, Privacy, Security, and Confidentiality 7.Diversity and Workplace Advocacy 8.Culture of Safety 9.Quality Care Monitoring and Improvement Elements of the original Forces of Magnetism have been incorporated into Exemplary Professional Practice and reconfigured into these 9 Sources of Evidence. 39
Exemplary Professional Practice: EP The achievement of exemplary professional practice involves both philosophy and practice, patient/family centered care, interdisciplinary collaboration, ethical & safety considerations, and use of data and national benchmarks to improve performance and patient care. It is hard for me to imagine that the exemplary practice by nurses can take place in isolation from knowledge-based resources and the assistance of librarians to locate these. What services can you suggest or changes to current services? 40

Library services for Exemplary Professional Practice Brainstorming? 43
New Knowledge, Innovation, & Improvements (NK) Magnet organizations conscientiously integrate evidence-based practice and research into clinical and operational processes. Magnet organizations have an ethical and professional responsibility to contribute to patient care, the organization, and the profession in terms of new knowledge, innovations and improvements. This component includes new models of care, application of existing evidence, new evidence, and visible contributions to the science of nursing. 45
Library Services for NK? Evidence based practicediscovering new knowledge If no new knowledge on a practice question, conduct your own study Share your research results Obvious Magnet opportunities for library Ideas?
Empirical Outcomes (EO) The application manual states that the empirical measurement of quality outcomes related to nursing leadership and clinical practice in Magnet organizations is imperative. The component does not state any particular requirements itself but that outcome sources, indicated by EO, are requested throughout the sources of evidence.
Suggestions for Empirical Outcomes: Suggestions for Empirical Outcomes: If you have any outcomes to report under any of the Magnet components, you should try to include: How the work was done, i.e. methods & approach; RN involved in planning Describe the measurement used to evaluate outcomes & the impact (results & significance) Purpose Background Who was involved CNO, staff RNs, APRNs, pharmacists, physicians, etc.
Tips for Data Gathering Document planning meetings, including who is present and if they are an RN Have a sign-in sheet for meetings, programs, presentations, etc. and ask about RN status Capture as much data as possible about use of resources, statistics by status (RN, physician, staff) such as interlibrary loan, circulation, etc. Consider regular monitoring of quality of information services by a feedback sheet or questionnaire and capture RN status if possible.
What do librarians need to know about nurses, EBNP & nurses information Needs? The Philosophy & Research 51
52 Evidence-based Nursing Practice (EBNP), Nursing Research & the Magnet Journey Margaret (Peg) Allen, & Joy Kennedy, Joy Kennedy, 52
53 1. Define the question 2. Collect evidence 3. Critically appraise the evidence 4. Integrate evidence into practice situation 5. Evaluate the process Evidence Based Nursing Process Evidence Based Nursing Process 53 --graphic developed by Dr. Susan Pierce from the Pravikoff, Pierce & Tanner
54 Data Use in Clinical Decisions (based on Graves JR, Corcoran S. The study of nursing informatics. Image. 1989;21:(4):227–31.) 54 The practice of evidence based care seeks to make published knowledge-based information more central to the clinical decision process.

The Magnet Journey: Opportunities for Librarians to Partner with Nurses. Title of article for JMLA Vital Pathways symposium issue October,2009 Vital Pathways for Hospital Librarians (VP) task force: official MLA response to threats faced by hospital librariansVital Pathways for Hospital Librarians Like Magnet, Vital Pathways focus was on outcomes Efforts continuing by HLS & NAHRS sections now that VP taskforce ended 84
After the Class is Over: Magnet Challenge Action Plans Analyze your organization, your nurses and nursing leadership Think about the concepts weve discussed Read some of the literature weve provided – search for more addressing your idea Analyze your librarys resources and viable alternatives Convey your willingness and eagerness to be part of the Magnet processand your enthusiasm Be aware that additional resources for library may not be forthcoming 85
How to Fund: Business plan or Grant proposal? A grant proposal is like proposing a new service, except that you are going to an external funding source In business plan, think of administrators as an external source with little or no knowledge of what we do – write so that they understand your request No library jargon! KISS principle: Keep it simple, stupid 86
Pegs thoughts on grants: tm tm tm Strategic Planning Model –Strengths – why you can be trusted with their money –Weaknesses – why you need funding –Opportunities – funding organization priorities (Magnet expectations) –Threats – what will happen without funding Find funding organizations interested in supporting your needs 87
Strategic Planning: SWOT Model Strengths Weaknesses Opportunities Threats 88 Effective Programs Analysis of each component is foundation for success
Program Planning Model Program Planning Model Information portals Lack of librarian time 89 Effective Programs Opportunities or Threats? Strengths or Weaknesses? Knowledge sourcesNurses needs Can you turn weaknesses into opportunities for improvement?
Thoughts continued… Needs assessment is vital for either grant or new service plan Proposal Development Bibliography – a beginning DeSilets, L. (2007, May).

More thoughts on proposals… Realistic plan & budget – but double time you think you need –Keep objectives simple – don't tie to specific methods Follow their writing instructions!!! Meet deadlines –Build in enough time in proposal development process for last minute snafus 91
Summing up: Collaborate with nursing to choose resources and strategies! Map projects to Magnet model components! Evaluate efforts, gather& analyze data – translate to outcomes! Publish your data and share your ideas with librarians & with nurses elsewhere! 92

Comments on Transformation Leadership The library is away from their unit and provides them a quiet place to contemplate and explore new ideas. Since I am included in many Manager meetings - I do get a chance to hear some of the concerns in the organization - and many times I come back, run a search - and the person who would most likely be interested in what the literature has to offer them. This has really impressed several individuals. I partnered with our Practice & Education Councils to visit EACH unit on day shift to promote remote access to resources and Nursing Consult in particular. We dropped off snacks to each unit's break room and did on-the-spot "speedy reviews" of what this product has to offer. We also left behind vendor-provided promotional items, reference cards, my business cards, and remote access applications with each unit's manager. Since that time, I have seen an upswing in Nursing Consult usage, and we received over 100 new Athens access applications. Time saving for Administrators: Whenever I work with a nursing administration employee on a CINAHL search, I always show them how to create an account in EBSCO; they love the fact that they can save their searches, including articles stored in their folder.
Structural Empowerment --Suggested Ideas from our Classes Structural Empowerment --Suggested Ideas from our Classes Open houses, trivia contests and raffles promoting library – let them know that library is for all staff Promote Nurses Week as well as National Medical Librarians month Serve as a mentor in learning the research process Support and attend research day poster sessions – see what happened with those searches! Workshop on creating posters for research days and conferences Become part of new nurse orientation – last stop on tour (with treats?) so they can browse and see whats available Extra services – notary, test proctoring Post/share articles written by nurses and other staff; maintain bibliography Demonstrate that knowledge is power Support for journal clubs – try online, as Moodle forum Column in nursing newsletter 98
Structural Empowerment More ideas Structural Empowerment More ideas Support for updates of nursing policies & procedures through searches, ILL, etc. Development of intranet site of Library resources; availability of Library resources inside electronic medical record Forums, wikis & SharePoint on hospital Intranet for nurses to collaborate & share Building relationships with local nursing students & act as resource for public library & junior college Work with Nursing Staff Development to jointly create professional development courses for nurses Act as consultant/searcher to nurses with new ideas for change Supporting nurses continuing education with the collection, instruction, encouragement Teaching nurses to search, about evidence-based practice principles, how to use databases 99
Comments on Structural Empowerment Employees are empowered where they have access to information, support, resources and opportunities to learn & grow in their work setting. just getting the word out to the nurses that we are here to support their journey and what we have to offer. Of course, there is more to structural empowerment than internet connectivity, but we all know information is power, right? If they are empowered to make clinical decisions based on evidence, they need access to the evidence, even beyond a packaged resource on the intranet. The library will search for funding opportunities for specific research projects, specifically community nursing projects that support the hospital's community involvement. Librarians who have some familiarity with public health information resources can be valuable members of a team tasked with developing a hospital's community engagement program - identifying the major health challenges in a given community, mapping strengths and weaknesses...
Exemplary Professional Practice --Suggested ideas from our Classes Support community outreach – help with health fairs and health career events Teach health literacy classes at public library, working with nurses from various specialties Provide handouts and resources for community events, including Medline Plus bookmarks and pens Resources and workshops on finding patient education resources, including those for diverse populations Library services for patients as TV menu choice – hand delivering packets Support information prescription program Proactive sharing of articles on hot topics – example of article on bullying that addresses horizontal violence issues Support for nurses returning to school 101
Exemplary Professional Practice More ideas-- Books, bibliographies or Internet Portals on nursing theory and/or conceptual framework of nursing Teach nurses about searching for info on EBP, how to use quality measures Keep ANA guidelines in collection Nursing ethics resources Serve on Interdisciplinary Research committee Provide citation management software & support it to effect collaboration Find out about Professional Practice Models, how to search for information about them in support of organizations choice Be internal expert and resource for planning 102
Comments on Exemplary Professional Practice I approached our Nursing Director this morning who is also the person handling Magnet. She was extremely pleased that I am taking the initiative to find out what I can do as a librarian to support the Magnet process. She advised me that both the PPM and the Nursing Care Model are being developed. She suggested we meet this week and discuss. I am excited about developing better ties with the Nurses. I've talked to the nurse in charge of our "Journey to Magnet" and she says we don't have a Professional Practice Model yet, but that would be part of the strategic plan developed at the all-day Magnet retreat that I will be attending on Nov 23rd. She asked if I would talk for 5-10 minutes about this online Magnet course and how the library can help in the pursuit of Magnet. With all the information I've learned so far, that won't be a problem. through a literature search, [library can] provide reviews and updates, standards, trends, and changes as they relate to nursing practice issues
Typical comment: We often say that it seems as though all the nurses here at the hospital are going to school! We do support them in every sense since we feel that we are their "home" library and that they are here more than they are at school, especially for those who are taking online courses. One of the most recent things we did was to create a Resources for Local Nursing Programs link (http://www4.umdnj.edu/camlbweb/nursingschool s.html) from the Academic Resources -- Nursing Education section of our library page. We tell the nurses that we will even try to help them troubleshoot using the resources from their nursing schools. Also, since we have these links from the library page, the sites are not arbitrarily blocked by our firewall as has happened in the past. 104
New Knowledge, Innovations, and Improvement --Suggested Ideas from our Classes Add CINAHL (or another nursing database) Add more full text – Joanna Briggs, Cochrane Library, nursing research and specialty journals Involve nurses in decisions on new library resources Diversity collection – links Facilitate new product demonstrations Support for new technologies, including handheld devices Rounding with nurses on different units Use nursing staff to help with training 105
New Knowledge, Innovations, and Improvement More ideas Provide information on how to find EBP articles, several EB nursing pages including PICO samples, and a link to the EB pyramid Provide literature searches, provide Linkout from PubMed, additional electronic resources Teach evaluating the literature Help them really understand EBP Put policies in APA format Collaborating with nurses to provide online EBP course, training classes on PICO clinical questions Provide point-of-care information products RSS feed to AHRQ Healthcare Innovations Exchange & OJIN Overhaul the nursing journal collection Provide tips under signature re new web resource, search tip, etc. 106
Comments on New Knowledge, Innovations, Improvement help the nurses ensure their practices are evidence-based by participating in the Nursing Policy & Procedure Committee; I encourage them to find updated references when reviewing/revising p&ps, and I conduct literature searches, ideally with them but often on my own, to find the highest level evidence possible providing a sample research problem and giving nurses a PICO worksheet or something to work through to really "get" how PICOs are developed. I prepared over 40 clinical disease PowerPoint presentations along with EB/full-text articles for academic medicine. It is now the goal of the library to provide these clinical modules to the nurses as supplemental resources for self-directed learning. The bibliographies will be expanded to include nursing literature and, where necessary, the PowerPoint Presentations will be edited to reflect nursing's unique approach to disease treatment and management.
Empirical Outcomes --Suggested Ideas from our Classes We keep track of the nursing searches and one on ones that we do and what type of nurse the patron is (admin, staff, educator, etc) and provide those numbers to the leadership. …This is a concrete way the library can show that nurses are learning more about searching and using the literature in clinical practice. Using Google docs for quizzes, evaluations & feedback on searches – shorter surveys are best Capture stories of how services, especially searches, made a difference in patient care Capture statistics on use of electronic resources, including title specific data for nursing journals Publications list kept by library is part of the evidence for Magnet 108
Empirical Outcomes --More ideas Tying library services to outcomes both quantitative and qualitative Provide evidence that library education & efforts are effective as well as use statistics by type of user Provide searches and information in support of National Patient Safety Goals Benchmarking data for QI department Provide guidelines (guidelines.gov) and statistics 109
