EBSCO’s Evidence-Based Content can Help Your Hospital Achieve Magnet Status
Nursing Reference Center and CINAHL Complete can help your hospital achieve Magnet status. Magnet status is granted by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to health care organizations that provide the very best in nursing care, provide a positive practice environment for employees and help shape future change in the nursing profession.
Content Meets the Five Magnet Model Components
ANCC has categorized the essential characteristics needed for Magnet Recognition into five Model Components and EBSCO can help you meet all of them in the following ways:
Magnet Component 1: Transformational Leadership
EBSCO’s nursing databases provide best practices for hospital leadership and include current information on health care reformations, health care policy, the latest innovations and new approaches to help nurse managers lead their staff to meet the demands of the future.
Magnet Component 2: Structural Empowerment
EBSCO’s resources provide tools to ensure your nursing staff is developed, directed, and empowered to accomplish organizational goals and achieve desired outcomes. Nurse managers can access authoritative material to create strategic plans and provide nurses with evidence-based resources to heighten nursing competency and improve quality outcomes.
Magnet Component 3: Exemplary Professional Practice
EBSCO’s nursing resources provide nurses with the tools they need to provide high-quality, culturally competent care to patients. Resources include evidence-based point-of-care material including disease and condition overviews that map to the nursing workflow, patient education handouts to explain a condition or procedure to patients and their families, and much more.
Magnet Component 4: New Knowledge, Innovation, Improvements
Resources provide nurses with up-to-date evidence-based information and outline how this evidence can be applied. Resources include quick lessons, overviews, drug information, skills and procedures and more. The editorial process follows a strict 7-step evidence-based methodology. Nurses can stay current with top nursing journals, medical updates and alerts.
Magnet Component 5: Empirical Quality Results
This component focuses on the outcomes of structures and processes and how they compare to benchmarks. Clinical outcomes refer to workforce outcomes, patient outcomes and organizational outcomes. EBSCO’s databases provide literature on how to improve structures and policies and include reports on patient care outcomes and benchmarks.
