NURS6201 Leadership in Nursing and Healthcare Week 3 Discussion Systems in Healthcare What is systems thinking? How can the nurse leader apply this perspective (e.g., as it relates to policies and protocols)? How might the leader propel the team to think from a systems perspective? In this Discussion, you select a transition of care and consider how you might apply the IHI Quadruple Aim to your selection. Photo Credit: Getty Images To prepare: Review the Resources on systems thinking, particularly the Arnold & Wade article. Consider how you would define systems thinking. Select a macrosystem-level transition of care (e.g., hospital to nursing home, skilled nursing facility to home care) to use for this Discussion. Review the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) resources, familiarizing yourself with the Quadruple Aim. By Day 3 of Week 3Describe systems thinking in your own words. Briefly describe the macrosystem-level transition of care you selected. Identify two points of care across the care continuum present at this transition and briefly describe two strategies/inventions that nurse leaders could implement to align interventions for safe, quality transitions of care with the IHI Quadruple Aim. Be specific and provide examples. Note: For this Discussion, you are required to complete your initial post before you will be able to view and respond to your colleagues’ postings.
