  • Affordable, accessible, quality health care and improved patient outcomes depend upon patient-centered and comprehensive care provided by interprofessional partnerships of physicians, nurses and other health professionals.
  • Nursing data is central to improve patient outcomes, quality, safety and the delivery of population-based care.
