Standardization in Wound Care Delivery to Reduce Systemic Variation
This is a quality process improvement Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) project focusing on the systemic variation of wound care delivery in the healthcare continuum of an organization and the systematic strategy, planning, and implementation conducted to create a standardized wound care process. The standardized wound care process incorporates the expertise of a Wound Ostomy Continence Nurse (WOCN) and virtual technology. Through servant leadership and human-centered design, the DNP project illustrates how creating and implementing a standardized wound care process for nurses to use can reduce variation in wound care delivery, increase patient access to the WOCN, improve overall patient access, and enhance organizational efficiency.
