Health care providers' perception of a clinical data tool for wellness promotion : the continuous wellness profile
Current trends in healthcare are increasingly directed towards wellness and prevention. Today's health care providers are in a prime position to assist in meeting the wellness goal of promoting health and preventing disease. The problem exists that healthcare providers do not consistently incorporate current recommendations for preventive services into their practice although publication sare available as guides to assist them in health promotion and wellness endeavors. One reason healthcare providers miss opportunities to provide preventive services is a lack of available clinic systems. The development of a valid and useful tool for consistently documenting preventive services is indicated.
The Continuouse Wellness Profile is a lcinical data tool developed to assist healthcare providers in recognizing and delivering preventive services appropriate at each client visist and recording these services. The purpose of this proposed project is to validate the content of this clinical data tool and evaluate the usefulness of this tool as a documentation form.
Content validity will be verified. Face validity has been met through the approval of professors in the Family Nurse Practitioner program at the University of Central Florida. Validation of content will be obtained through review by a panel of experts who will complete an evaluation form on the Continuous Wellness Profile. Evaluation of the data tool's usefulness as a documentation form will be completed by a self-selected group of Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners from the Central Florida area. The form will be used by these Nurse Practitioners in their practice and evaluated.
