Unit Based Nursing Forums

Through unit-based forums, nurses along with members of the unit based healthcare delivery teams monitor and provide input regarding unit operations and clinical issues. Unit Champions assist and lead innovations and improvements through analysis, design and implementation of new processes, education, safety improvements, workflow design, staff and patient satisfaction and quality initiatives.


Nursing Council Structure


nursing-2011-223Our shared governance model engages nurses in identifying opportunities to improve the work environment and set the direction for each unit and department.  Forums empower unit-level staff and focus on specific operations and clinical issues.

In addition to unit-based forums, nursing is represented and supported by a council structure comprised of nurses and interprofessional colleagues from all aspects and levels of practice.

The council structure embraces a collaborative environment baed on mutual respect. It supports opportunities for nurses and providers to network, share knowledge. explore innovative practices and improve outcomes.
