Improving VA Primary Care Nurse Education on Veteran Advance Care Planning

Project Description: This Quality Improvement project followed an over-arching Model for Improvement and the purposes of this project are (1) assess advance care planning (ACP) knowledge of primary care nurses working at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and (2) deliver and evaluate the effect of an ACP education workshop on this group of nurses. The objective of this project is to determine if education on ACP improves knowledge among VA primary care nurses. This objective will be tested through the use of a course evaluation. In addition, the number of advance directive (AD) discussions implemented at the two clinic sites will be monitored through an Advance Directive Dashboard. This dashboard includes the number of AD discussions notes entered monthly per clinic site.
