Speaker:

Lily Thomas, Ph.D., RN, FAAN,

Vice President, System Nursing Research,, North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System Sponsor: Rockefeller University Session Summary:
The Rockefeller University and the Heilbrunn Family Center for Research Nursing are delighted to announce that Dr. Lily Thomas, a leader in the application of evidence-based approaches to nursing care, will deliver the 2014 Beatrice Renfield lecture. As Vice President of System Nursing Research at North Shore-LIJ Health System, Dr. Thomas has built and sustained a culture of inquiry in a 16-hospital health system that employs approximately 11,000 nurses. A clinical nurse researcher, she has played a key role in several nationwide studies and programs aimed at developing more effective approaches to patient care. She has also contributed to a number of large-scale implementations designed to optimize care delivery and patient outcomes.
Highlights of her contributions include: conducting a national study on preventing medication administration errors; designing large-scale implementation of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Team STEPPS system with a significant improvement in the quality and culture of safety; and facilitating the discovery of Trombley-Brennan Terminal Tissue Injury and its impact on end-of-life care. Dr. Thomas has designed, tested, and disseminated several successful evidence-based healthcare models, including a problem-solving model for nurse managers that has had positive impacts on patient satisfaction and the quality and cost of care.
On March 5, Dr. Thomas will discuss the progression of EBP (evidence-based practice), its impact, and the concept of improvement science. Dr. Thomas serves on the Improvement Science Research Network (ISRN) steering council and is the Network principal investigator on a national study that explores the impact of cognitive load, interruptions, and distractions on medication administration errors and targets ISRN’s patient safety priorities. In her lecture, she will present findings from the initial phase of this study.
The program is an initiative of the University’s Heilbrunn Family Center for Research Nursing.
