Nurses: Our Nerve Centre
Nurses at the Neuro are on the front line and are involved in all aspects of the health care system, whether it is research, administration, education or clinical care. Their role in improving the health and well-being of others is critical.
Transforming Care at the Bedside
Neuroscience Nurses at The Neuro are the first in Canada to participate in the international program Transforming Care at the Bedside (TCAB). This program, created by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), was designed to turn a select set of high performing hospitals into innovative learning labs for real-time improvement in patient care. The nurses are working to define and implement best practices in patient-centered inpatient care, and to increase direct care time for nurses. American and European hospitals that have participated in TCAB report better clinical outcomes, reduced nurse turnover and lower costs. Nurses will apply their energy and expertise, and involve inter-professional team members, patients and their families to transform patient care.
