How can nurses champion change and improve outcomes by implementing the ICU Liberation Bundle (A-F)? Laura S. Maples, MSN, RN, CCRN-K, summarizes how nurses become early adopters of the bundle, focusing on advocacy for their patients’ best outcomes, and advocating for multiprofessional collaboration to successfully implement the elements of the bundle.
How can nurses champion change and improve outcomes by implementing the ICU Liberation Bundle (A-F)? As both a bedside critical care nurse and a remote quality nurse consultant, I have championed various system-wide quality initiatives. Critical care nurses already understand some of the challenges involved in implementing the ICU Liberation Bundle. Leadership support is required to ensure appropriate equipment, electronic tools, and personnel to empower the nurse’s role in this vital evidence-based practice. A supportive integrated workflow framework is also required to promote the coordination of a multiprofessional collaborative approach to allow nurses to deliver the patient-centered, evidence-based, and quality-driven care that improves their patient’s outcomes.
To champion change for improved implementation of the ICU Liberation Bundle, nurses must become early adopters and influencers of evidence-based practices. This role requires commitment to patient care and knowledge of the evidence-based practices embedded in the bundle. Nurses, who provide 24/7 critical care, must focus on advocacy for their patients’ best outcomes and long-term survival. To support complete bundle implementation, nurses must advocate for multiprofessional collaboration and proactively ensure the inclusion of appropriate team members to implement the bundle.
