2005 AJN Book of the Year Award Winner! When patient characteristics and nurse competencies match, patient outcomes are optimized, according To The Synergy Model. Synergy for Clinical Excellence: The AACN Synergy Model for Patient Care enhances the understanding of the Synergy 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.
