To build and strengthen a professional practice environment for our clinical nursing staff which fosters:
Clinical nursing staff involvement in making decisions which impact their practice has been in place at York Hospital for several years. Whether it be the Nursing Clinical Council of the late 1990's, the clinical staff who re-designed the clinical ladder in 1999, the staff who designed the Patient Care Tower from 200-2005, or the Shared Decision Making Design team of 2002-2003, staff nurse input has been heard and valued at the hospital, service line and unit levels.
The York Hospital Shared Decision Making Model continues to grow and mature. The journey has not always been smooth or easy, but the vision of strengthening the professional practice environment for our nursing staff continues to be our compass.
Below are links to information about each council that make up the Shared Decision Making process including the leaders, members and accomplishments of the respective councils for 2005.
