Nursing is a core service in hospitals and other health care settings, but its cost has encouraged efforts to reduce nurse staffing or substitute lower skilled staff for registered nurses. This presentation reviews the evidence of the impact of low staffing or increased use of less skilled staff on patient outcomes, discusses whether the observed associations should be treated as causal, and examines the cost of higher staffing levels and cost savings associated with using higher and more skilled staff.
Lecture followed by discussion and reception. This event is free and open to all members of the healthcare community. Business casual or aloha attire. Space is limited; RSVPs required. RSVP online at https://nursing.hawaii.edu/events/deanslecture2018/ by Tuesday, October 30, 2018.
