· Preparation · Select a single nursing-sensitive quality indica

Select a single nursing-sensitive
quality indicator that you see as important to a selected type of health care
system. Choose from the following list:
o Pressure ulcer prevalence
is the topic of the training.
Conduct independent research on the
most current information about the selected nursing-sensitive quality
Interview a professional colleague or
contact who is familiar with quality monitoring and how technology can help to
collect and report quality indicator data. You do not need to submit the transcript of your conversation
but do integrate what you learned from the interview into the audio tutorial.
Consider these questions for your interview:
What is your experience with
collecting data and entering it into a database?
What challenges have you experienced?
How does your organization share with
the nursing staff and other members of the health care system the quality
improvement monitoring results?
What role do bedside nurses and other
frontline staff have in entering the data? For example, do staff members enter
the information into an electronic medical record for extraction? Or do they
enter it into another system? How effective is this process?

Recording Your Presentation
To prepare to record the audio for your presentation, complete
the following:
Set up and test your microphone or
headset using the installation instructions provided by the manufacturer. You
only need to use the headset if your audio is not clear and high quality when
captured by the microphone.
Practice using the equipment to
ensure the audio quality is sufficient.
Review the for Kaltura to
record your presentation.

This video addresses the primary areas involved in creating effective
audiovisual presentations. You can return to this resource throughout the
process of creating your presentation to view the tutorial appropriate for you
at each stage.
You may use other tools to record
your tutorial. You will, however, need to consult Using Kaltura for instructions on how to upload
your audio-recorded tutorial into the courseroom, or you must provide a working
link your instructor can easily access.
You may also choose to create a video
of your tutorial, but this is not required.
If you require the use of assistive
technology or alternative communication methods to participate in this

For this assessment, imagine you are a member of a Quality
Improvement Council at any type of health care system, whether acute,
ambulatory, home health, managed care, et cetera. Your Council has identified
that newly hired nurses would benefit from comprehensive training on the
importance of nursing-sensitive quality indicators. The Council would like the
training to address how this information is collected and disseminated across
the organization. It would also like the training to describe the role nurses
have in accurate reporting and high-quality results.
The Council indicates a recording is preferable to a written
fact sheet due to the popularity of audio blogs. In this way, new hires can
listen to the tutorial on their own time using their phone or other device.
As a result of this need, you offer to create an audio tutorial
orienting new hires to these topics. You know that you will need a script to guide
your audio recording. You also plan to incorporate into your script the
insights you learned from conducting an interview with an authority on quality
monitoring and the use of technology to collect and report quality indicator
You determine that you will cover the following topics in your
audio tutorial script:
Nursing-Sensitive Quality Indicator
What is the National Database
of Nursing-Sensitive Quality Indicators?
What is nursing-sensitive quality
Which particular quality indicator
did you select to address in your tutorial?
Why is this quality indicator
important to monitor?
Be sure to address the impact of this
indicator on the quality of care and patient safety.
Why do new nurses need to be familiar
with this particular quality indicator when providing patient care?
Collection and
Distribution of Quality Indicator Data
According to your interview and other
resources, how does your organization collect data on this quality indicator?
How does the organization disseminate
aggregate data?
What role do nurses play in
supporting accurate reporting and high-quality results?
As an example, consider the
importance of accurately entering data regarding nursing interventions.
After completing your script, practice delivering your tutorial
several times before recording it.
Additional Requirements
Audio communication: Deliver a professional, effective audio tutorial on a selected
quality indicator that engages new nurses and motivates them to accurately
report quality data in a timely fashion.
Length: 8–10 minute audio recording. Use Kaltura to upload your

Script: A separate document with the script or speaker’s notes is
required. Important: Submissions that do not include the script or speaker’s
notes will be returned as a non-performance.
References: Cite a minimum of three scholarly and/or authoritative
APA: Submit, along with the recording, a separate reference page that
follows APA style and formatting guidelines. For an APA refresher, consult the Evidence and APA page on Campus.
