Sacramento, California (PRWEB) March 28, 2011
CALNOC, the leader in the quest for global patient care excellence, is pleased to present a truly special event. In recognizing the call to action presented by the Robert Wood Johnson IOM Future of Nursing (FoN) Report, CALNOC is delighted to present IOM FoN Committee Chairperson, Donna Shalala (President of University of Miami & previous US Secretary of Health and Human Services) and Vice Chairperson Linda Burnes Bolton, Vice President & Chief Nursing Officer at Cedars-Sinai Health Systems and CALNOC Co Investigator) at its First CALNOC Research Fund Annual Dinner and Fundraiser on June 15, 2011 at the Westin Hotel in Long Beach, CA. Proceeds of this event will benefit and establish The CALNOC Research Fund, a grants program supporting clinical research in best practices and innovations for improving patient care.
“We are very honored that President Shalala and Dr. Burnes Bolton will join us to launch the CALNOC Research Fund to share their insights and observations at this unprecedented event,” says Dr. Nancy Donaldson, Chairperson of the Board of Directors for CALNOC. Added Dr. Donaldson, “The CALNOC Research Fund will be an important resource to provide seed money to support patient safety and quality advocates in conducting research to further the goals outlined in this pioneering report.”
CALNOC (Collaborative Alliance for Nursing Outcomes) has been in the forefront of providing valuable information and research on nurse sensitive indicators for its member hospitals since 1996. Meeting CMS registry criteria, and used for Magnet recognition documentation, CALNOC members have consistently been able to translate their benchmarking data into information to guide decisions for providing and improving patient care. CALNOC’s unique on-demand web-based QUIC ™ analysis program combines staffing variables overlaid with nurse sensitive patient variables at the unit level to allow hospitals to benchmark internally and externally against other institutions and hospital systems. Using the CALNOC benchmarks, staffing and other costs are lowered while quality and access to care through evidence-based practices increases. Best practices research examines top performers to determine the structure and processes that help them reach their goals for highly reliable care. This is the full potential of The CALNOC Advantage as a CMS registry.
