Using Chocolate as a Strategy to Understand Nursing Outcomes

Are you confident you know the difference between a process outcome and an empirical outcome? Nurses have an inherent desire to improve patient outcomes, their professional nursing practice and their practice environment. When organizations are immersed in quality improvement projects, a lot of attention is placed on auditing, collecting data and monitoring for compliance. While those performance improvement methodologies are important for assessing for cracks in structures and processes of quality systems, they don’t always demonstrate empirical outcomes.

This professional development activity focuses on understanding the difference between process outcomes and empirical outcomes. This session is interactive and offers strategies for moving from process outcomes to empirical outcomes when writing narratives.
