Professional Practice Model
At Stormont Vail, the Professional Practice Model is a tool to ensure that all nurses have the same core understanding of what it means to practice in our organization and culture. The mission, vision, and values of the organization and nursing form the foundation of our PPM. With patient-focused care at the core, our framework is rooted within a patient-centered care-delivery model and Watson's Theory of Caring. The development of therapeutic relationships with our patients and team members along with expressions of caring are core performance and behavior expectations for our organization. Providing compassion and delivering evidenced based care, working collaboratively and respectfully with our team members and our valued patients and families, ensures the highest quality of care. Emerging nursing areas tied to practice include promoting wellness for nurses themselves, patients, and the community; care transformation through the ways and models that care is provided; and improved patient experience by embracing and enhancing the voice and feedback from patients and team members on expectations and experience.
