Shared Decision Making Program

Shared Decision Making Program at Kishwaukee Hospital and Valley West Hospital

Nurses at NM Kishwaukee & NM Valley West Hospitals are empowered to participate in decisions that involve their practice and environment. The hospital-wide Shared Decision Making Councils have implemented practices that positively impacted patient safety and nurse engagement. Opportunities for participation exist at the unit and hospital-wide level and allow nurses to develop as leaders.
