Summary

When patient characteristics and nurse competencies match, patient outcomes are optimized, according to The AACN Synergy Model for Patient Care. Synergy for Clinical Excellence: The AACN Synergy Model for Patient Care enhances the understanding of the Synergy Model and provides nurses with the clinical knowledge they need to apply this model in practice. Based on a decade of work by the American Association of Critical Care Nurses, the text encompasses the history and development of the nurse and patient characteristics inherent in the Synergy Model, and then thoroughly addresses each characteristic individually and applies the model in practice. Sample test questions relevant to the model will assist nurses in preparing for certification, and provide further examples of the integration of the Synergy Model in practice. The AACN Synergy Model for Patient Care is the most widely applicable framework for nursing practice. This makes Synergy for Clinical Excellence: The AACN Synergy Model for Patient Care an essential reference in caring for critically ill patients.
