PURPOSE/OBJECTIVES: The aim of the project was to discern whether a collaborative, consultative-rich, clinical nurse specialist-led project could increase completion rates of a patient health questionnaire for depression and a generalized anxiety disorder questionnaire with appropriate referrals in adult patients in the ambulatory and hospital settings of a robust cardiovascular surgery practice before cardiovascular surgery. DESCRIPTION OF PROJECT: The Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control implementation methodology guided this quality improvement project. The workflow was analyzed in collaboration with stakeholders, and barriers to and facilitators of questionnaire completion were identified. Interpreter services partnerships were enhanced and used for patients with a preferred language other than English. Weekly data analysis assessed ongoing questionnaire completion rates. OUTCOME: Documented completion rates of questionnaires improved across ambulatory and hospital settings by 15%. Patients with a preferred language other than English had an 80-percentage-point increase in documented questionnaire completion. CONCLUSION: Clinical nurse specialists are poised to lead projects because of their use of the collaborative and consultative core competencies. A formal electronic health record report was established for monitoring outcomes. Embedding questionnaire administration within the standard workflow of ambulatory and hospital staff makes administering questionnaires preoperatively a sustainable practice in both settings.
