Paper Presentation: Global Health—Long-Distance Coaching for a Quality Improvement Initiative to Improve Nursing Assessment and Management of Nausea and Vomiting in Marrakech, Morocco (220-3)

2:10 – 3:30 pm Thursday, September 3

Quality improvement (QI) in health care consists of systematic and continuous actions that lead to measurable improvements in the patient experience. While QI methodology has long been included as a core component of nursing education and professional development in institutions in the United States, QI methodology is novel in many low- and middle-income countries.

This presentation will describe a QI initiative to improve nursing assessment and management of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting at Centre Hospitalier-Universitaire Mohammed VI (CHU Mohammed VI) in Marrakech, Morocco. The local nursing team was coached by a nurse practitioner and project coordinator with QI expertise from the Department of Global Pediatric Medicine at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. This presentation will describe the feasibility and impact of long-distance coaching on nurse-led QI projects.
