This video is from the video and facilitation package that is no longer in publication and no longer for sale: "Delegating Effectively: Working Through and With Assistive Personnel." The materials and video have been utilized to create a CE course available to nurses at NCSBN Learning Extension. Members can access the course for free through NCSBN Interactive Courses. "Delegating Effectively" is designed to help nurses and nursing students review and learn how to master delegation skills. It outlines a step-by-step approach to insuring the best way to achieve positive client outcomes by working effectively through and with others, specifically assistive personnel. The video follows the story of a client in a hospital, Ms. Campbell, and her care by an RN, an LPN, and a nurse aide. As her story unfolds, viewers get a first hand look at how critical the skill of delegation can be. Throughout the story, red flags appear on the screen when an important step in the delegation process is breached. These areas are then discussed on screen by an expert, Vickie Sheets, JD, RN, CAE, Director of Practice and Regulation for NCSBN. Viewers witness that in the case of Ms. Campbell, the delegation process was in jeopardy from the start. However, viewers also learn that there were numerous points at which the downward spiral could have been halted. Reestablishing the delegation process at any one of these points could have averted disaster.
