Anything which we dont do well?

  1. Hi all I am doing a course at the moment which I need to do a teaching piece for. A poster, teaching box or booklet is fine. It has to be something PICU and medical based.

    Does anyone have any ideas on what isnt done well or what would be usefull to learn???

    Thanks for your help

    Since almost all hospitals are trying to better comply with Joint Commission standards, I would suggest a teaching topic related to one of the National Patient Safety goals. A couple of the more obvious ones that relate to PICU are CLABSI and VAP.

    If you are doing this project for a specific PICU, I highly recommend asking the manager or nurse educator on the unit if there is a specific topic that they suggest. Those staff are in the best position to suggest a topic based on the education needs of the unit.

    Ashley, you took the words right outta my mouth! I think any of those topics related to the National Patient Safety Goals would work quite well for this type of project (CA-UTI, CLABSI, VAP...) There would be a ton of research available as well.

    Good luck!
