Advancing and Sustaining Evidence-Based Practice and Clinician Well-being: Key Strategies to Reach the Quadruple Aim in Healthcare

Sep 6, 2018 8:15am ‐ Sep 6, 2018 9:15am

Healthcare in 2018 will continue to be the whitewater of change and uncertainty. Legislators and consumers are demanding more cost transparencies. With the shift away from fee-for-service, healthcare systems want ways to lower costs while simultaneously improving the quality of care. Utilizing big data and clinical evidence to improve patient outcomes is of increasing importance. These challenges have implications for nursing. Dr. Melnyk provides an overview of what to expect in 2018 and how to handle the unexpected challenges of providing quality and proving it works within our systems.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the current state of EBP and nurse wellness throughout the U.S.
  • Discuss the new national EBP competencies study,
  • Discuss how to build cultures of EBP and well-being.

You’re Breathing Fast, You’re Blue, and You Look Like You’re in Shock: Cardiac or Pulmonary?

Sep 6, 2018 3:15pm ‐ Sep 6, 2018 4:15pm

*This session was not recorded. Please access the Handout for content.

Prenatal diagnosis has reduced the number of babies presenting unexpectedly with congenital heart disease (CHD). There are still many infants who present, however, with respiratory distress that may signal the presence of CHD... or that might be pulmonary in origin. Dr. Karlsen focuses on important physical examination findings that help sort out whether it's the heart or the lungs. Common pulmonary etiologies and the most severe cardiac lesions are also discussed. 

  • Compare and contrast the physical examination findings of severe cardiac and pulmonary disease.
  • Discriminate between the usual presentations of common pulmonary diseases versus critical cardiac structural heart disease.

The Use of Off-Label Drugs in the NICU

Sep 6, 2018 3:15pm ‐ Sep 6, 2018 4:15pm

The off-label use of medications is pretty much the standard for neonatology. What is really considered to be off-label use? Why should we, perhaps, be thinking about these drug choices more than we do? Join Dr. Thigpen for a discussion that turns on the lights about off-label drugs. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Define and differentiate between "off label" and "investigational" and how and when these terms should be used in neonatology.
  • Describe the history of off label use of medications in neonatology and how this persistent issue continues to be addressed.
  • Discuss areas in neonatal care where increased research on drug therapy is especially indicated.
