The Comprehensive Unit-Based Safety Program provides a structured program to improve the culture of safety as a framework for improving patient outcomes with focused effort to address both adaptive work centered on teamwork and culture as well as technical work specific to standard work of delivering evidence-based practice. Doctor of nursing practice (DNP) project offered an approach to mindfulness in the workplace intended to explore ways to overcome the barrier of time, as well as the educational or perhaps even cultural gap that overlooks the essential need for self-care. Explicating theory-based nursing practice has far-reaching implications for DNP nurse executives. The integration of enhanced huddles (EH) and the rapid process improvement model is an effective process tool in improving quality care delivery. Creating a culture of change, empowerment, and communication through the EH model is key to translating evidence-based knowledge to clinical practice.
