Patients and families are encouraged to be participatory members of the health care team - helping to make decisions about their care or the care of a loved one.

Each level escalates to the next, allowing for strong communication and collaboration between quality councils, as well as within and between the service lines. Within the councils, nurses formulate their practice questions, conduct literature reviews, review research articles, and create quality improvement projects geared to the specific needs of their patients.

We have a formal clinical ladder program and clinical ladder coaches who can help you assess your goals and guide you through the portfolio and application process.
