And this is appropriate for empathetic pain management.
However, when PRN utilization exceeds Context-of-Care Adjusted limits - it becomes a key indicator of the need for targeted education and support.
Key Benefits of CareEffects Stewardship:
Individual bedside nurse PRN opioid use - when Context-of-Care, risk, and peer adjusted - provides deep insight into key patient assessment and management skills. Nurses who are outliers in this practice area often have other practice deficits - making this indicator a powerful tool for focusing education efforts on those nurses who need them most.
CareEffects Stewardship is proactive - stopping opioid misuse before it progresses to diversion by proactively addressing overly aggressive or lax pain management.
Additionally - focused stewardship education produces a verifiable ROI:
Apply evidence-based guidelines and best practices in pain assessment and treatment directly to the staff members who need them. Minimize adverse drug events, optimize nursing practice, and reduce costs associated with readmissions and length of stay.
