A PART OF PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE & CLINICAL IMPROVEMENT
Driven with Stanford Health Care’s commitment to patient centered care, the Professional Practice & Clinical Improvement nursing quality team is actively involved in safety and quality improvement initiatives focused on measuring and improving patient outcomes across the organization. The team prioritizes quality improvement initiatives based on the positive impact the plan will have for patients and their families. In addition to meeting internal goals based on rigorous monitoring and reporting and strictly adhering to regulatory laws that influence improvement priorities, the team also initiates quality improvement programs to meet external goals, including the Joint Commission's National Patient Safety Goals and Magnet accreditation standards. The Quality Team consists of nurses with advanced skills in quality and performance improvement who conduct data analysis that drives the coordination and facilitation of our improvement activities.
