Part 5: Value-informed nursing practice: Why must we think about the practice of nursing differently?

      Previously in this six-part series (
      • Buerhaus P.I.
      • Yakusheva O.
      Six part series on value-informed nursing practice.
      ), we discussed the history of value-based payment (
      • Yakusheva O.
      • Rambur B.
      • Buerhaus P.I.
      Part 1. Value-informed nursing practice: What is it and how to make it a reality.
      ), what value-informed nursing practice entails and how hospitals and nursing leadership, researchers, and educators can support its implementation (
      • Yakusheva O.
      • Rambur B.
      • O’Reily M.
      • Buerhaus P.I.
      Part 2. Value-based payment promotes better patient care, incentives health care delivery organizations to improve outcomes and lower costs, and can empower nurses.
      ), and how it can support environmental sustainability (
      • Yakusheva O.
      • Czerwinski M.A.
      • Buerhaus P.I.
      Part 3. Value-informed nursing practice is needed to make our health care systems more environmentally sustainable.
      ) and innovation in health care (
      • Yakusheva O.
      • Munro Kramer M.
      • Love R.
      • Buerhaus P.I.
      Part 4. Value-informed nursing practice depends on nursing innovation.
      ). Value-informed nursing practice—nursing practice that aims to improve patient outcomes while minimizing the cost of care—will require nurses to think about the practice of nursing differently. Here, in Part 5, we focus on the changes in norms, attitudes, and behaviors needed to hasten the adoption of value-informed nursing practice.
