Building a Culture of Civility: A Population Health Essential for Quality and Safety

Speakers:

QSEN RN-BSN Task Force

lead by Ann Stalter, RN, PhD and Janet Phillips Nice, RN, PhD, ANEF

Overview:

There is a critical need to address incivility across health systems as the result is impaired population health outcomes specifically related to quality and safety. The purpose of this interactive workshop is to provide essential skills to advance a culture of civility within healthcare systems and schools of nursing. A case study approach will be used to highlight strategies to engage teams to solve real world scenarios specific to system incivility and population health outcomes.

 Pre-conference Workshop Option #5

(8:30-11:30 AM) Room: Estero C

Title:
Mathematics Education and Nursing: Current Issues and Challenges

Speakers and credentials:

Sponsoring Agency/Organization: The Charles A. Dana Center at University of Texas at Austin and the Mathematical Association of America •

Rebecca Hartzler, MS, Manager for Advocacy and Professional Learning Higher Education, Mathematics, Charles A. Dana Center

Daniel Ozimek, M.Ed., Assistant Professor of Mathematics, Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences

Anna Wendel, MSN, CRNP,  Nursing Faculty, Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences

Suzanne Doree,  Professor, Mathematics Augsburg University

Doug Ensley,  Deputy Executive Director Mathematical Association of America

John Clochesy, PhD, MA, RN Professor and Senior Assistant Dean PhD program and Director Faculty Mentorship Program, College of Nursing, University of Southern Florida

Description:

This pre-conference workshop will begin by providing an overview of the research regarding best practices for mathematics education of nursing students. Current research recommends an emphasis on contextualization, including both the learning and assessment environment, and teaching for conceptual understanding. Mathematical competency is essential for safe nursing practice, both in medication administration and in quality improvement. Although many programs focus on the mathematical skills needed for calculating medication dosage, it is equally crucial for nursing students to develop the ability to interpret and analyze both mathematical and statistical information encountered in the contexts of research, patient data, and healthcare administration. Attendees will participate in a facilitated discussion of current instructional and assessment practices and the challenges facing educators in implementing research-based practices in their own institutions. At the end of the workshop, attendees will have the opportunity to join a QSEN task force to promote mathematical preparation of nurses.

Outcomes:

By the end of the session, the attendee will gain:

An understanding of specific mathematical competencies for nursing students

An awareness of gaps in current mathematics instruction

An understanding of effective assessment of mathematical competencies

New ideas regarding research-based practices for the mathematics education of nursing students

The opportunity to join the QSEN task force to promote high-quality mathematical preparation of nurses
