Abstract:

Through an initiative called Transforming Care at the Bedside (TCAB), the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement have created an innovative bottom-up framework for redesigning the work environment on medical-surgical units. The specific purpose of this study, conducted by the University of California Los Angeles/RAND evaluation team, was to examine the number of innovations tested and the association of the volume of tests made and changes in a summary measurement of self-reported vitality at the 13 participating hospitals. The findings of this evaluation yielded several important implications for nurse leaders.
