Resource Spotlight: Understanding Whole Systems Change in Healthcare: Evidence-Informed Nursing Service Delivery Models

Whole Systems Change in Healthcare
Whole Systems Change in Healthcare

The imperative to deliver the best care possible drives research on best practices in nursing, but what does it take to spread a guideline or recommendation from one or two units or organizations to a system-wide innovation that benefits all patients and providers and the healthcare system as a whole? What cost drivers and increased benefits come with spreading a best practice; and what supports, sustains or gets in the way of spreading evidence-informed change?

Those were the questions the authors set out to answer in the study detailed in this report. The program's goal was to improve understanding of how health systems introduce, support and spread evidence-informed innovations. [adapted from summary]
