TRANSFORM Your CULTURE OF CARE TO REFLECT A TRAUMA-INFORMED, Age-appropriate PARADIGM
what is Quantum Caring?
Quantum is the minimum amount of any physical entity involved in an interaction
Caring is a physical entity that is requisite to nurturing, therapeutic human interactions imbued with emotion, psychology and spirituality
Quantum Caring taps into our understanding of how everything matters to the tiny infants and families we serve in the NICU and beyond.
The Quantum Caring approach uses the core measures for trauma-informed, age-appropriate care as the evidence-based catalyst to transform how care is rendered and received for infants, families and professionals in your unit.
Utilizing the model for improvement and other methodologies from the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, the program's results-oriented approach ensures a tangible return on your investment
Quantum Caring (QC) is a cultural transformation program designed to facilitate the adoption and integration of the core measures for trauma-informed, age-appropriate care into your culture of care. These core measure sets are endorsed by the National Association of Neonatal Nurses, Canadian Association of Neonatal Nurses, Canadian Association of Perinatal and Women's Health, and the Council of International Neonatal Nurses.
Program timelines range from 6 months to 3 years. Whether you want to focus on one select core measure or adopt all five core measures your transformation goals and objectives inform your timeline!
The program includes:
A pre-program staff perception survey regarding trauma-informed care practice environments
An on-site environment of care audit to corroborate survey results
Creation of a Project Steering Committee
In-person and virtual staff education over the program period covering the latest research findings relative to early life adversity and toxic stress as well as evidence-based best practices across the five core measures
