Importance of the Patient and Staff Satisfaction (PASS) Committee.
The opportunity to work with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) means that nurses have greater resources in researching for best evidence-based practices in order to upgrade the care provided to patients who rely on us to keep them healthy. There are always new ways being found to help with clinical processes and making them more efficient as well as determining better health solutions for patients who may have a myriad of problems (Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt 2011).As part of providing better practices to patients, the establishment of the Patient and Staff Satisfaction (PASS) Committee through which practices are examined and critiqued for improvement if needed.
This includes conducting reviews of case studies from the nurses who have attended patients and how they were able to provide solutions, or if there was an area that needed improving, such as how research was conducted to find the best solution (LoBiondo-Wood & Haber 2013. Webb 2011). It is important for nurses to know how to conduct research and what tools are available for them to do so. This includes using medical library databases such as Cochrane and MEDLINE/PubMed, a resource division of the National Institute of Health (NIH).
