Abstract

This is the fifth in a series of articles from Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston describing one general medical unit's experiences with Transforming Care at the Bedside (TCAB). An initiative begun by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, TCAB was developed as a way to improve care on medical–surgical units, patients' and family members' experience of care, and teamwork among care team members, and to increase satisfaction and retention of nurses. The TCAB philosophy engages all care leaders but empowers bedside nurses to generate ideas and solutions for change. Mass General is one of 68 hospitals participating in a two-year TCAB initiative led by the American Organization of Nurse Executives and funded by a grant from the RWJF.
