for two different programs:

Peritoneal Dialysis Quarterly Review (reduce length of stay) and a Colon Clean Closure program (reduced surgical site infection). In 2017, their NPDpractitioners challenged themselves to each completed an ROI calculation for at least one project, resulting in a to- tal of 13 calculations. From this effort, they reported an increased awareness of program effectiveness and eco- nomic impact of the NPD department activities and a collection of objective data to help with ‘‘future project de- cision-making.’’ Garrison and Beverage listed lessons learned as the need to (a) identify an economic impact leader within NPD; (b) repeatedly revisit the topic with articles, examples, and reminders to keep NPD practi- tioners engaged; (c) lead by example through completing calculations and sharing them with the team; (d) offer as- sistancewith calculating financial impactwith projects; and (e) add measuring economic impact of programs to the planning stage of programs. This NPD department’s pro- cess to incorporate economic impact into their practice is a challenge to all NPD practitioners. With publication of more financial measures, the value of NPD contributions will become more apparent to decision makers.

Each of these articles contributes to the body of literature demonstrating the value of professional development activ- ities through economic impact evaluations. Through increasing awareness of the financial side of education, the authors pointed out the role education plays, which is beneficial to both patients and healthcare organizations by

n reducing central line-associated bloodstream infectionsVboth infection rates and saving lives;

n decreasing length of stay; n preventing pressure injuries; n improving staff confidence in high-risk, low-volume procedures, that is, peritoneal dialysis; and

n decreasing surgical site infections. As nurses, our focus is on improving the well-being

and comfort of our patients, including decreasing patient length of stay, decreasing risk of infections, and preventing pressure ulcers. AsNPDpractitioners, calculating the finan- cial impact of educational interventions bymeasuring the outcomes can change the perspective of organizational leaders toward education from one of activities to meaning- ful accomplishments with great benefit to the organization.
