Supporting factors of the implementation of clinical pathway approach in nursing care

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Objective: This study aimed to identify the supporting factors and the nurses’ expectation related to the implementation of clinical pathway in nursing care at the hospital. Methods: A quantitative, cross-sectional, descriptive study was conducted at a medical-surgical unit of a hospital in Jakarta Indonesia. Participants were 100 nurses with minimal one-year work experience, selected using proportional purposive sampling method. Data were collected using a questionnaire and were analyzed descriptively. Results: The nursing care management factor was found to be of highest performance (90%), while the rest showed inadequate performances (24%, 14%, 39%, and 41%, respectively). Meanwhile, nurses expected to have improved nursing care information system (50%) and reward system (60%) to support the clinical pathway in nursing care. Conclusions: Most of the supporting factors in the implementation of clinical pathway in nursing care were still suboptimal. Nurses’ expectations on this issue indicate that there will be an improvement.
