A sequential, evidence-based bundle of 10 best bedside practices serves as a template for professional practice and becomes a shared language and standards for interdisciplinary team communication and development. Improvements in registered nurse leadership skill levels, corresponding clinical outcomes, and patient and staff satisfaction have been realized through implementation of the Relationship & Results Oriented Healthcare certification program and practice model.
