The ASPMN® Joint Commission Tool Kit is finally here! A resource to help you navigate and assist your institution with meeting the new and revised pain assessment and management standards set forth by the Joint Commission effective January 1, 2018, in sections: Leadership (LD), Medical Staff (MS), Provision of Care, Treatment, and Services (PC), and Performance Improvement (PI).
This toolkit is not meant to be a comprehensive “how to meet all TJC pain standards” document, because all facilities are unique and will have different opportunities and barriers. It is meant to give examples of interventions and resources to help in individualizing the standards in your institution. Hospitals and nursing, in particular, have struggled with providing quality pain and comfort care to patients in today’s healthcare climate. Multiple factors affect the care being given and it is our hope that this toolkit can assist in meeting and providing quality patient care.
Available in the ASPMN® store, ASPMN® members can purchase the tool kit at a special member price of $20. Non-ASPMN® members can purchase online as well for $50.
