- Week 13 Discussion: Practical/Clinical Issue
To do:Make forum posts: 2
Value: 100 points
Due: In an effort to facilitate scholarly discourse, create your initial post by Day 3, and reply to two of your classmates by Day 7.
Grading Category: Discussions
- After reviewing the 2012 QSEN Graduate Competencies (PDF), identify a quality/safety issue that you have seen in your practice or clinical setting.
- Explain to your classmates the issue you have identified and the reasons why it is an issue. Include the potential negative outcomes that can arise if the issue is not resolved.
- As you create your post, review the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of the relevant competency regarding the quality/safety issue you have identified.
- Using the SWOT Analysis Resource, review two classmatesâ€™ posts.
- Identify two items from each of the four components (S, W, O, T) that are relevant to the problem your classmate identified. Explain your reasoning for each.
To reply to the example in the initial post, you could select advantages of the proposition and financial reserves from the Strengths quadrant. Elaborate on the advantages of following the recommendationsâ€”for example, following professional standards of equal care, decreasing cost by not ordering unnecessary diagnostic tests, and increasing revenue from shorter visit times.
Items you might identify from the Weakness quadrant could include processes and systems, and morale commitment and leadership. These items are weaknesses because of the need to train providers on national recommendations and to create a system within the EMR to track PAP smears.
You should then choose two items from both the Opportunities quadrant and the Threats quadrant and include them in your reply post.
Please refer to the Grading Rubric for details on how this activity will be graded. The grading for the number of reply posts is based on individual Discussion Board instructions. If the rubric indicates a different number for reply posts, you will not be graded down, as long as you have followed the reply post instructions.

The goal of QSEN is to overcome the challenges of giving future and potential healthcare workers with the skills, knowledge, concepts, and attitudes needed to improve the safety and quality of the healthcare delivery system (Cengiz, 2020). A quality/safety issue identified the minimum or lack of Patient-Centered care provision.Patient-centered care is defined as the foundation as the provision of care which comprised respect clientâ€™s values, cultures, needs, and preferences as well as providing empathetic and coordinated care (Eklund et al., 2019). This continue to be a persistent problem in most healthcare facilities where patients donâ€™t feel their feel respected or valued, and their preferences or needs unmet. Every patient we serve have their own values, cultural beliefs or norms, and personal preferences and as providers it is important to accept and understand these differences among the patients we serve. In order to provide care that will promote individualized comfort and emotional well-being, it is crucial that we provide patient centered care to increase the patient’s comfort and wellbeing in the care we provide. This problem may lead to patients ineffectively making an informed decision that would impact them. This negative impact may also lead to decreased patientâ€™s satisfaction rates of the hospital and care they received. Patient centered care is crucial in the honoring patients needs, preferences, values, and improving the clientâ€™s satisfactory rates in most healthcare settings. (Kuipers, 2019). Lack of patient-centered care may also make patients feel unsafe when care is being administered when the patient should be feeling rather comfortable and safe which could lead to poor communication between them, where the patient may fail to give the healthcare provider the information they may need for the appropriate intervention. Affecting the overall quality of care leading to poor results based on the treatment outcomes.
