Nursing Peer Review in Action: Experienced Nurses Share Best Practices and Lessons Learned
Thursday, December 3, 2015 at 1:00-2:00 p.m. Eastern
HCPro is hosting a free webcast on December 3 about formal, case-based nursing peer review. Join Sarah Moody, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, and June Marshall, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, for a free 60-minute webcast on how incident-based nursing peer review benefits an organization and elevates nurse practice.
These experienced speakers will clarify the difference between formal, incident-based nursing peer review and the type of review that involves peer evaluation of nurses’ performance. They will demonstrate how incident-based nursing peer review can elevate quality and the professionalism of nursing through sharing case studies and lessons learned.
Moody and Marshall have many years of experience leading nursing peer review committees as incident-based nursing peer review is mandated by the Texas Nursing Practice Act.

Last week’s peer review webcast (presented by Laura Harrington and Marla Smith) was followed by a lively question and answer period. Topics ranged from the meaning of “timely” in terms of completing a review* to the virtues of including a section in your scoring that considers “contributing factors”** … and much more.
* Answer: <90 days
** Answer: Be flexible. If you want to include special factors in scoring, it may help identify process issues to address proactively separate from the review
Just a few more days left until our Nursing Peer Review webcast, featuring nursing peer review experts Laura Harrington, RN, BSN, MHA, CPHQ, CPCQM, and Marla Smith, MHSA. These authors of the HCPro book Nursing Peer Review, Second Edition: A Practical, Nonpunitive Approach to Case Review, will pack a 90-minute webcast with answers to these questions, and more:
How do you actually do nursing case review? How do you deal
with the outcomes? And how can you use case review to monitor performance and track and trend data? And what are the core requirements for confidentiality? (See below for Don’t Disclose,
a cheat sheet of guidelines, and look for a notice soon for download instructions.)
