Shared Governance and Accountability Advance Patient Outcomes

Montefiore’s established systems of collective decision-making foster excellence, shared governance and accountability—all of which contribute to achieving quality patient outcomes, in addition to advancing the entire discipline.

Our mechanisms to achieve seamless patient care include:

  • Nursing councils that establish a methodology to propel and guide decisions in the areas of professional practice, education, documentation, policy, research, resource allocation, recruitment and retention, strategic planning and future directions.
  • A system of shared governance that creates checks and balances to continuously evaluate the effectiveness of care processes and patient outcomes.
