Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
Registered nurses and members of various professions exchange knowledge and ideas about how to deliver safe and high-quality health care, resulting in overlaps and constantly changing professional practice boundaries. In accordance with recommendations from professional organizations that team-based care improves safety, satisfaction, quality, and efficiency, nurses are contributing to and leading initiatives in the provision of team-based patient-centered care and development of a collegial work environment (Interprofessional Education Collaborative Expert Panel, 2011). According to the American Nurses Association (ANA) one objective of nursing is to achieve positive patient outcomes that maximize one's quality of life across the entire life-span. RNs facilitate the interdisciplinary and comprehensive care provided by all other healthcare professionals. We are to employ practices which are restorative, supportive, and promotive in nature. RNs regularly evaluate safety, effectiveness, and cost in the planning and delivery of nursing care. We recognize that resources are limited and unequally distributed. Standards to consider associated risks, benefits, and costs, current scientific evidence, expected trajectory of the condition, and clinical expertise with formulating outcomes.
