We are also recognized for promoting a collaborative practice environment because of the many facets involved in the provision of excellent patient care. In 2011, a research study was conducted at NYUHJD aimed at enhancing communication between patients, their families, and our interdisciplinary team members. In ASC, a new program called Surgical Nurse Liaison has been developed and initiated to promote a patient-centered experience. Nurses work side by side with leadership in order to support a healthy work environment, achieve excellence through nursing research and evidenced based practice.
