Implementing a Change Management Process for Ensuring Effective Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation across Patients Suffering from Cardiac Arrest Name of the Student Walden University NURS 4020, Section 04, Organizational and Change Theory December 21, 2016 Background Nurses should incorporate evidence-based knowledge and changes for enhancing their professional competence. Hence, nurse leaders should facilitate the transition of evidence-based guidelines across staff nurses by implementing appropriate changes in practice settings (Berg et al., 2010). Compliance with appropriate changes not only ensures safe and quality healthcare but also increases the profitability and goodwill of the respective healthcare organization. The purpose of this paper is to portray the necessity and impact of implementing a change management process in the cardiac care unit of a tertiary care hospital. Organizational and Change Management Nurses have to implement effective interventions for managing patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases. One such intervention is cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). CPR is often coupled with chest compression (CC) for managing patients suffering from cardiac arrest. Appropriate CPR and CC is strongly associated with a reduction in the prevalence of cardiovascular mortality. However, different studies indicate that most nurses fail to achieve the recommended depth and frequency of chest compression (Berg et al., 2010). Evidence-based guidelines have endorsed that the depth and frequency of chest compression should be at least 50mm and 100/min respectively (Berg et al., 2010). The major causes for non-compliance with evidence-based
