Schedule Day One
The Goal Need for Program
Healthcare is undergoing major changes which are affecting the way nurses provide care. Regular appraisal of knowledge, skill and practice gaps are vital if nurses are to deliver safe and quality care consistent with their scope of practice. Changes include:
- A shift away from health practitioner locus of control to the patient
- Increasing professional accountability
- Emphasis on measurable, high quality and safe care
- Greater transparency for health care actions
- Personal responsibility for ongoing education to guide practice
Addressing these gaps is crucial. Nurses need to be confident the practice they provide is current and reflects appropriate evidence. Access to up-to-date education is essential.
