As sepsis and septic shock with subsequent multi-organ failure are the leading causes of death in adult intensive care units (ICUs), most healthcare simulation programs should consider medical simulation scenarios that [...]
The Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) project was designed to ensure that future nurses will have the knowledge, skills and attitudes (KSAs) necessary to continuously improve the quality and safety of the healthcare systems within which they work. Today guest author Dr. Kim Baily PhD, MSN, RN, CNE, shares about the six quality [...]
