Translation of Research into Healthcare Quality Practice

ABSTRACT This department column highlights translation of research into healthcare quality practice. Achieving the highest quality in healthcare requires organizations to understand care delivery and to develop and design process efficiencies. The improvement process may be enhanced through a partnership between the healthcare facility and an affiliated school of nursing. The purpose of this article was to describe the process for developing a large-scale improvement project focused on enhancing care transitions within an academic medical center using an academic–practice partnership model.
