Introduction to Caring Science: Enhancing the Caring Culture Introduction to Caring Science: Enhancing the Caring Culture Presentation Transcript

  • Kaiser Permanente, Northern California Caritas Consortium 2013 Introduction to Caring Science: Enhancing the Caring Culture Caritas in Action How Caring Science informs and inspires KP caregivers and affirms our commitment to provide our patients and their families exceptional care
  • Introduction to Caring Science: Enhancing the Caring Culture Intent to Contribute Statement: Purpose: The knowledge of Caring Science, shared by as many employees as possible, is the important step for Caring Science enculturation. Although all nurses understand caring in the context of their learning and their experience, Knowledge of Caring cannot be assumed (Watson, 2008, p.18). The New Registered Nurse Hospital Nursing Orientation is a great opportunity to introduce Caring Science to more front-line staff. Project Description: The primary reference of the Introduction to Caring Science presentation is The Philosophy and Science of Caring (Watson, 2008), which provides information on Caring Science and Watson’s Ten Caritas Processes™. The presentation is designed to pique the curiosity of RNs who attend this session, so that they will continue to learn about Caring Science. One focus will be to enliven the rounds at the hospital that I lead as a House Supervisor as the nurses and I create moments together, discuss together, and learn together to co-create the Caritas field--a caring and healing environment. The project developed in several phases: Phase I: Building institutional strategic support for enhancing the caring culture. Page 2
  • Introduction to Caring Science: Enhancing the Caring Culture Con’t: Project Description: Phase II: Planning a 45-minute Introduction to Caring Science program guided by Watson’s Caring Science and Ten Caritas Processes™ that was both theoretical and experiential. The Introduction to Caring Science program has these components: 08:30-08:35 Welcome, Centering Moment using Jean Watson’s words from her book. 08:35-08:40 Theory-guided Practice and Caring Science - Who is Jean Watson? 08:40-08:50 Watson’s 10 Caritas Process™ as a guide of professional practice of Caring Science. 08:50-09:15 Self Care: Benefit of the caring mindset. Participants will experience practicing Breathing Meditation and Guided Imagery Meditation (Serenity Within) as examples of self care. Caring Moment: The definition, sharing the moment from participants. Phase III: Evaluation and refinement related to increased understanding of Caring Science and to its long-term change in culture. Project Outcome: Written and verbal feedback from nurses will be collected after each presentation, beginning with the first presentation on 9/4/12 to evaluate learning. The feedback will be used to improve the Introduction to Caring Science session as part of the ongoing monthly New Registered Nurse Hospital Nursing Orientation. An exploration of this 45-minute Introduction to Caring Science about how it can be used other occasions will continue. Future directions include working with the Director of Patient Experience to search for, or develop a research instrument to assess Caring Science cultural change over time. Page 3
