Look Who Made it to the Human Capital Blog

Check out this new entry on RWJF's Human Capital blog... congratulations to INQRI researchers Marianne Weiss, D.N.Sc., R.N.; Olga Yakusheva, Ph.D. and Kathleen Bobay, Ph.D., R.N., N.E.A.-B.C. on all the terrific coverage given to your study lately!

In their INQRI project, "A Quality and Cost Analysis of Nurse Practice Predictors of Readiness for Hospital Discharge and Post-Discharge Outcomes," this team from Marquette University broke new ground by linking the unit-level nurse practice environment and nursing care processes with patient outcomes at discharge and post-hospitalization. Specifically, the study examined direct and indirect causal relationships between the nursing practice environment, the discharge teaching process and readiness for hospital discharge with hospital readmission and emergency department utilization.
