Over a decade has passed since the Institute of Medicine’s reports on the need to improve the American healthcare system, and yet only slight improvement in quality and safety has been reported. The Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) initiative was developed to integrate quality and safety competencies into nursing education. The current challenge is for nurses to move beyond the application of QSEN competencies to individual patients and families and incorporate systems thinking in quality and safety education and healthcare delivery. This article provides a history of QSEN and proposes a framework in which systems thinking is a critical aspect in the application of the QSEN competencies. We provide examples of how using this framework expands nursing focus from individual care to care of the system and propose ways to teach and measure systems thinking. The conclusion calls for movement from personal effort and individual care to a focus on care of the system that will accelerate improvement of healthcare quality and safety.

Viewing nurses’ work through the lens of quality and safety requires a contemporary approach that incorporates systems thinking. A crucial skill, systems thinking helps nurses to meet the challenge of improving healthcare as they move beyond the application of the QSEN competencies from individual patients and families to accelerate the overall improvement of healthcare quality and safety. In this article, we review the history of QSEN and propose a framework that expands nursing focus from individual care based on personal effort and care of the individual to systems thinking and care of the system. Examples are provided to demonstrate how to integrate systems thinking in the application of QSEN competencies and how systems thinking can be taught and measured.

    Chapter 23: The Urinary System

    Critical Thinking Questions

    Chapter 23: The Urinary System

    1. Suppose you suddenly develop a wild craving for bananas and eat a half-dozen. Since bananas are rich in potassium, this will raise your blood potassium concentration. How does the body get rid of the extra potassium? Why are people who take diuretic drugs for their hypertension advised to eat bananas or take potassium supplements?

    2. A person with kidney disease may develop hypertension. What are two different mechanisms by which abnormal kidney function might produce hypertension? What are two different ways that drugs could act via the kidneys to reduce hypertension?

    The major structures comprising the filtration membrane are fenestrations and podocyte fenestra, fused basement membrane, and filtration slits.

    Symptoms of kidney failure are weakness, lethargy, shortness of breath, widespread edema, anemia, metabolic acidosis or alkalosis, heart arrhythmias, uremia, loss of appetite, fatigue, excessive urination, and oliguria.

    that is so mean what you did that you lied to the vet and said that you found the kitten just to save money. I hope they find out about that and charge you double for fraud. too bad you haddn t spent that money on getting your cat spayed so you and the cat wouldn t have had to go through all of that.
