My Story- University of Minnesota Amplatz Children's Hospital: Always Event

  1. 1. MyStory, A Multifaceted Initiative to Capture Each Pediatric Patient’s StoryInspiration for the MyStory ProjectMyStory was designed to personalize the care we provide to pediatric patientsand transform the hospital experience for the patients and families we serve at theUniversity of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital.Background and Significance• Americans had 36 million hospital stays in 2000. o Approximately 18% of these stays were for children and adolescents 17 years and younger. o This accounts for about 13% of all days in the hospital, and about 9% of total hospital charges (AHRQ, 2000).• There is resounding evidence displaying the importance of capturing the psychosocial aspects of a child being admitted to an acute care hospital setting. o Incorporating the psychosocial needs of pediatric patients creates individualized, patient centered care that engages the child in decision-making. (Kelsey, Abelson-Mitchell & Skirton, 2006, Prilleltensky, 2010, Prilleltensky, Nelson & Peirson, 2001, Reed, Smith, Fletcher & Bradding, 2003, Sartain, Clarke & Heyman, 2000)• Despite the growing body of literature that emphasizes the need to talk directly to the child and stresses the importance of obtaining the child’s view, this is rarely done in practice.• Sadly, children are often silent consumers of health care; children’s voices remain generally excluded from decision making and care planning in acute care hospital settings (Coyne, 2006).Methodology Evidence-based• Build an intervention with patients and families that will be an Always Event ™ when caring for children — MyStory. o MyStory as an Always Event is an ™ interprofessional effort to capture each MyStory patient’s “story.” Personalizing o Document the “story” in a convenient Interprofessional Pediatric Patient and Family tool within the electronic health Collaboration Involvement record. Care o Use the patient’s “story” to personalize the care we provide to patients, and to involve them in care planning and decision making.• Personalize the care for all pediatric My Story: patients by learning their story and This is to be used as a template only!
