Practice and Quality Committee

The Practice and Quality Committee (P&Q) meets on a regular basis and exists to provide an interdisciplinary forum for evaluating the quality and appropriateness of patient care and clinical practice. The purpose of this committee is to support change that optimizes goal alignment, communication and teamwork, and reduces redundancy and duplication.

In order to foster the coordination and alignment of goals and activities related to practice and quality within the Department of Patient Care Services, P&Q oversees the work of several subcommittees. These subcommittees include: Falls and Restraints, Skin Integrity, Patient Education, Patient Communication, and Medication Practices. Additionally there are three data collection subcommittees that support this work: Quality Monitoring Day, PU Survey Day, and eMAP Quality day.

Data from these groups, as well as findings from other QI activities, provide the foundation for recommendations for change and implementation based on the best available evidence and professional practice standards. This information is reported to the Patient Services Executive Committee and then to the Patient Safety Steering Committee.

Members of the Nursing Leadership Committee (NLC), along with colleagues from Rehab Services, Respiratory Therapy, Nutrition, Pharmacy, Infection Control, Quality and Patient Safety and other clinical ancillary departments comprise the P&Q Committee.
