Abstract

The goal to develop and implement a new model of nursing care delivery grew out of administrative and shared governance initiatives to improve the quality of nursing care. This evaluative study used both quantitative and qualitative methods. Seven principles related to quality were identified and became the driving force behind the changes. Aspects of these changes in care delivery were piloted on a neurological unit and included implementation of collaborative rounds, a modular structure, role changes, and work redesign. Frequency distribution, questionnaire, focus group, and financial data indicated that there had been improvement in the delivery of care in addition to financial benefits. A considerable amount of the data provided evidence that supported continuing the changes.
