Week 03 Learning Activity – Clinical Value Compass Worksheet
In this exercise, you and your nurse colleagues will select a specific population, state an aim, and select a set of outcomes/cost measures. In essence, you will identify measures of outcomes that contribute to the value of care. The final step is to name, define and operationalize the selected outcomes/measures. Complete the Clinical Value Compass to identify measures of outcomes/costs that contribute most to the value of care. For example:
Outcomes: Patients with confirmed acute MI, direct admits only, from time of admission to Emergency Department to 8 weeks post discharge.
Aim: To find ways to continually improve the quality and value of care for acute MI patients.
Using the Clinical Value Compass Worksheet, (ATTACHED) create a document where you fill out outcomes, aim, value, and operational definitions.
