PATIENT- & FAMILY-CENTERED CARE

Patient- and family-centered care requires more than a skill set. It requires a mindset focused on the principles of Dignity and Respect, Information Sharing, Participation and Collaboration. 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.

NURSING QUALITY

Our nursing quality councils are based on a three-tier infrastructure — unit level, service line level, and organizational level. 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.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Doctors Community Medical Center makes career growth and advancement a priority for our nurses. 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. We also offer financial aid and scholarship opportunities, along with in-house seminars, workshops and access to continuing education credits via HealthStream®.
