Clarity About Clinical Judgment: Nursing Actions and Measurable Indicators
Every day, nurses make patient-care decisions that require clinical judgment skills. However, doing so is often challenging for new graduates. There is a lack of evidence-based research to facilitate the development of clinical judgment skills and evaluate the performance of such skills. This presentation discusses findings of a study identifying actions associated with the performance of clinical judgment and measurable indicators providing evidence that clinical judgment occurred.
Following this session, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the role of clinical decision making in the provision of safe, quality client care
- Examine the clinical judgment process
- Discuss nursing actions associated with clinical judgment.
