1 What Are We Bringing to the Table? Margaret Lunney, PhD, RN College of Staten Island

2 WHY Should Nurses Be At the Table?  Nursing is a unique service  Nursing’s mission to help

3 What ARE We Bringing to the Table? Unique service of nurses is mostly invisible, e.g.,  Perceived as only “following” physician orders  Society views nursing as a subsystem of medicine Constant use of the term medical professionals instead of health care professionals

4 Unique Service is Mostly Invisible (cont.)  Generally, the unique services of nurses are not named or described  Medical diagnosis is still the primary language used in health care, even by nurses  When nursing is named and described, nursing science does not get the credit, e.g., CMS quality indicators were derived from nursing

5 What ARE We Bringing to the Table?  NYS Nurse Practice Act (1972) Diagnosis of Human Responses Treatment of Human Responses

6 What ARE We Bringing to the Table?  Described in nursing models, philosophies & theories  Problem: Narrative descriptions are not practical for most health care settings  Solution: Practical, clinically-based nursing concepts are available in standardized nursing languages (SNLs)

7 What Are We Bringing to the Table?  Question can be answered using concepts from NANDA, NOC & NIC (NNN): NANDA International (NANDA) Diagnoses Nursing-Sensitive Patient Outcomes Classification (NOC) Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC)

8 FYI: Websites   s/cncce/ s/cncce/  ndex.htm ndex.htm

9 Opportunity is Knocking  The Electronic Health Record (EHR) is imminent  Computerization means that file names will be used to represent nursing  Which file names are important for use with specific populations?

10 Research-Based Example: Experiences of Battered Women (Carlson-Catalano, 1997)  Altered Thought Processes  Stress Overload  Social Isolation  Sleep Pattern Disturbance  Self Esteem Disturbance  Ineffective Coping  Decisional Conflict  Fatigue  Ineffective Denial  Hopelessness  Altered Role Performance  Powerlessness  Ineffective Parenting

11 Example: Long Term Care: Diagnosis of Human Responses  Self care deficits  High risk for pressure ulcers  Self esteem disturbance  Powerlessness  Hopelessness  Anxiety  Ineffective breathing pattern  Chronic Pain

12 Example: Long Term Care Nursing Interventions  Bed Rest Care (0740)  Positioning (0840)  Nutrition Management (1100)  Exercise Management (0180)  Environmental Management: Comfort (6482)  Self Care Assistance (1800)  Behavior Management (4350)  Spiritual Support (5420)
