Abstract

In February 2019, The Educational Committee for OR Nursing in the Capital Region, Denmark, are going to conduct a qualitative study showing, how experienced theatre nurses, supervisors, and nursing managers have perceived, implemented, and adopted the competency cards into daily practice.

In each card different issues of the experienced nurse competencies are to be uncovered during a period of observation by a supervisor and examination of the nurse´s knowledge, skills and reflection. The four themes are 1. Clinical perioperative nursing e.g. hygiene and clinical leadership 2. Patient safety 3. Team performance 4. Documentation, clinical research and development in OR The aim The study will focus on: • How the experienced OR nurses convert theoretical knowledge and skills to real life situations in the OR and • How the concrete framework helps to ensure a successful implementation • If competency cards parameters support to a positive culture of learning assessment in the OR Methods In February 2019 a conduction of two explorative semi-structured mixed focus group interviews with nurse managers, supervisors, and newly employed OR nurses will be performed.
