CONSULTATIVE CHANGE Consultative Change Advanced Practice Nurses are continuously analyzing change and evaluating what can be done to improve the patient care within their facility. Most are utilized to evaluate evidence-based policies and procedures and come up with solutions to improve the safety, quality, and effectiveness of the patient care. Purpose of Consultation and Overview of the Consultation Process The purpose of the interview was to get a clear understanding of the hospital operations and how the roles are carried out. We all understand that a hospital cares for patients by administering treatment, performing consultations, prescribing medication, and providing assistance to the patients. Most of us do not take time to think of the challenges that are encountered in clinics by these nurses and doctors. Management of the clinic staff, and all the resources needed in the clinic, is a great responsibility to take on since at the end of the day positive results are expected. In this consultancy, we are going to look at the overview of the hospital organization through the help of the nurse in charge of the supervision in the cardiac department. We are going to see how Baptist Health is organized to help give services to the patients.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
