Hello Heather

Hello Heather Hasty, Great informative post! I tend to concur with your points, especially when you said, “The increase in nurse autonomy also increases nurse responsibility for example electrolyte replacement protocols”. You’ve really hit the nail on the head with that. I’ve been working with a few of my coworkers on professional nursing autonomy for the past years. This is challenging to implement with most senior staff members, especially those trained at places where nurse autonomy was not practised or encouraged.

Considering your post, I would like to share some insights regarding nurse-driven protocols from our investigation regarding patient safety and the use of protocols in our institution. There’s nothing more I can say about this post because it has everything a reader could want to know about how research works without having to trawl through an extended, drawn-out essay. Thank you for your information!
