Comprehensive Care IPOC upgrade
On Monday 14th August, upgrades to the Comprehensive Care IPOC will go live in the EMR. This includes a small number of preselected goals and nursing interventions.
After completing the patient’s Comprehensive Care Risk Assessments, the admitting nurse must initiate a Comprehensive Care IPOC, include patient specific goals and add additional interventions as required, to create an individualised plan of care.
Every subsequent shift, each nurse must review the Comprehensive Care IPOC, and update as required. Additional interventions can be added using the ‘add to phase’ function.
Every patient requires a plan of care; therefore every patient must have an individualised Comprehensive Care IPOC that is reviewed and updated every shift.
Two Quick Reference Guides have been created to support staff unfamiliar with using the Comprehensive Care IPOC.
Further education on Comprehensive Care and Patient Assessment is planned to commence mid-September.
