What is a team l.jpg
What is a Team

  • People who come together to fulfill a specific purpose

  • Teams may be ongoing or formed for a specific purpose

  • They are a small number of people with complementary skills who are committed to a common purpose and hold themselves responsible

  • Teams are both more or less efficient than individuals

Team work l.jpg
Team Work

  • The health care environment does not allow us to work independently

  • Patients have multiple and complex needs

  • Teamwork is essential to quality, timely and cost efficient care

Time management l.jpg
Time Management

  • Defined as: a set of related common-sense skills that helps you use your time in the most effective and productive way possible

  • Or: it allows us to achieve more with the available time we have

Time management10 l.jpg
Time Management

  • Requires a shift from being busy to getting things done

  • Pareto principle = 80% of unfocused effort results in 20% of the results or 20% of focused efforts results in 80% of the outcomes

Use of time l.jpg
Use of Time

  • 25 % of the nurses time is spent charting and reporting

  • 30-35 % is spent on direct patient care

  • The rest is spent on admission and discharge, professional communication, personal time, and providing care that could be provided by unlicensed personnel, such as transportation and housekeeping.

How to use time effectively l.jpg
How to Use Time Effectively

  • Know the big picture

  • Priority setting is the most critical skill

  • Constant assessment and re-prioritization of patient needs occurs

  • Must decide what needs immediate attention and what can wait, based on the patient’s condition and responses to care

Priority traps l.jpg
Priority Traps

  • Do whatever hits first trap

  • Taking the path of least resistance trap

  • Responding to the squeaky wheel trap

  • Completing tasks by default

  • Relying on misguided inspiration

Setting priorities l.jpg
Setting Priorities

  • Use Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs

  • Not every patient can be first (ER sees critical – urgent – can wait to be seen)

  • Always protect patients and maintain safety of patient and staff first

Priorities l.jpg

  • ABC’s and equipment used to support these systems

    • Vitals, LOC, pain, IV access, cardiac rhythm, O2, suction, UOP, etc.

  • Urgent patients

    • Safety and security

  • Non- urgent patients

    • Love and belonging, self-esteem, self actualization
