A new clinical resource from the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) provides one-stop convenience for nurses, clinicians and other healthcare professionals seeking evidence-based knowledge and tools to help them improve patient outcomes.
AACN PEARL: Implementing the ABCDE Bundle at the Bedside is an online collection of proven resources, supporting documentation and helpful implementation tools that simplifies the process of sharing critical learning with peers, staff nurses and hospital leadership. The first in a planned series of topic-specific resource collections, AACN PEARL - which stands for Practice, Evidence, Application, Resources and Leadership - also assists with the introduction of change initiatives on the unit.
Developed by veteran nurse educators and recognized subject matter experts, AACN PEARL was created for attendees of AACN's 2012 National Teaching Institute & Critical Care Exposition (NTI) as an exclusive means of bringing knowledge from the conference back to their workplace.
AACN is now pleased to share the collection with a wider nursing audience via its website.
"AACN PEARL makes it easy to introduce new learning or change initiatives on the unit by providing validated clinical knowledge, evidence-based tools and implementation guidelines all in one convenient place," said AACN Clinical Practice Specialist Linda Bell, RN, MSN. "The PEARL strengthens nursing practice by bridging the gap between attaining new knowledge and putting it into daily use. It's the newest example of AACN's efforts to anticipate the needs of high acuity and critical care nurses and support excellence at the bedside," she added.
