 2  Remote Collaboration and Evidence-Based Care 

Hello to all of you, my name is Nijawa Brooks and I am making this video to help you  learn more about the importance of remote collaboration for nurses with patients to improve  the outcomes of safety and quality in the light of evidence-based services. Remote patient  care is difficult that require nurses to build significant competencies; the most important  competency is the ability of nurses to enhance their evidence-based qualities. This video is  important that explains why the right implementation of evidence-based practices and models  are vital to ensure better care planning during an essential treatment. Nowadays, it is a great  trend of using technology for every patient care outcome and help nurses to collaborate with  doctors in a powerful way. The use of technology can help to reduce the risks of adverse  quality of care with remote collaboration in interdisciplinary practices and settings. This  means that ignoring the vitality of interdisciplinary remote collaboration is devastating in the  time of technological revolution. Healthcare organizations are no exception to this rule; due to  the current era of the pandemic, COVID-19 has changed everything in the world including  treatment of patients and their diagnosis. The evidence-based practices surely helped me to  create a robust plan for my organization to improve its implementation and practices of  remote collaboration tools/ the evidence-based practices also helped me as a senior nursing  professional to remove various barriers in the way of smooth in implementation of remote  collaboration tools.  

Remote Collaboration Scenario of Vila Health Remote Collaboration.  

 In this first phase of the video, let me explain the scenario in Vila Health Hospital that  led to evidence-based planning to improve the diagnosis of a child. The medical condition of  the child was bad and needed an immediate attention. Since the lack of availability of nurses

and physicians admits the pandemic made it difficult for the child to avail the right services.  The child was a three-year old child, Caitlyn, who was suffering from cystic fibrosis. Our 

 3  experts believe that analysing the child’s requirements would give them a good chance to  save her life. Caitlyn’s mother was contacted to continue the care within the home  environment that used remote collaboration tools amidst the COVID-19.  

Dr. Singer and Nurse Erica both supervised and cared for Caitlyn and took  responsibility for the wellbeing of Caitlyn in addition to a respiratory therapist named Marina.  The child has a scar tissue in both limbs and that led to the diagnosis of a possible cystic  fibrosis issue. Hence, the case was hard for the team to handle in the emergency situation.;  which is why, due to using evidence-based care planning, the team analysed the case and also  prescribed protein and calorie-filled diet to patient through paediatrician collaboration. The  child was not able to breathe smoothly; her discomfort was worrying everyone including the  respiratory therapist. Hence, using the technology called telemedicine and Microsoft Skype  for communication and education became an opportunity in Vila Health Hospital (Sy et al.,  2020). The weight of the girl is only 20 lbs and has issues in her limbs. Living in McHenry  makes it harder for the little girl to travel to the hospital and get treatment. This makes the  case more complex. Moreover, she cannot eat bread or puff due to breathing issues; her busy  parents are already separated; which is why it is hard for nurses to explain them the procedure  of their daughter’s treatment. This makes Skype collaboration a sign of relief.  

The Evidence-based Care Plan to enhance safety Outcomes  

Now, I will discuss the next part of the video that is very important. The evidence based strategy was built that involved consulting the right literature and pamphlets to explore  much knowledge about the disease and the therapy to help the child improve its condition.  The plan was based in the utilization of telehealth system that is the latest and the best  alternative in the middle of COVID-19 for pulse monitoring connected to the system that  helped to manage the child using smart phones and the Internet (Lanza, 2020).A similar  research by Smith et al. (2020) also provide the evidence that use of telehealth is vital to 

 4  communicate with the patient and allowing doctors and nurses to get the best data regarding  their treatment. Furthermore, more researchers agree to the fact that technology and remote  tools helps communication with a social perspective to give the best support to the patient  (Kauppi et al., 2020).  

The Way EBP model was Utilized to Develop the Care Plan

In this part of the video, I will reflect how the evidence helps to plan a model for  improving the care plan of the team involved in child’s treatment. Implementing and  designing a care plan, the process of evidence-based practices was useful to assess the  condition of child as the situation demanded. Moreover, telemedicine was good in the  emergency room that severely reduced the length of stay of the patient and also their waiting  time. This shows that due to overcrowding problems in COVID-19, telemedicine helped to  treat the patient well. Moreover, in winter, the availability of transport was difficult in these  times. Hence, scholars also agree that telemedicine is vital for improving the quality of  healthcare in the pandemic (Hickman et al., 2018).  

Strategies to Mitigate the Challenges of Interdisciplinary Collaboration 

 Now, let me describe the most important part of the video that shows me how I was  able to use evidence-based practices to enhance teamwork and reduced the costs of Vila  Health Hospital with remote practices and collaboration tools. The barriers were several  which could be solved and removed by employing strategies like powerful and strong Internet  connection in the organization. We utilized encoded video and online collaboration tools such  as ZOOM meetings. Microsoft Teams was another vital tool that was kept in the loop to  schedule calls with patients such as Caitlyn and her mother. Google Calendar is another great  technology app that helped us to streamline our events that provided us reminders. Therefore,  using all these telehealth tools, we were able to remove several barriers to productivity to treat 

 5  Caitlyn appropriately using remote collaboration based on evidence-based services (Bowen et  al, 2019).
