In 2018, the Professional Practice Council, the shared-decision making body at Johns Hopkins Bayview, reinvigorated the nursing professional practice model to incorporate the themes of patient- and family-centered care, interdisciplinary collaboration and professional nursing practice.  You can read more about the values that bind our nurses together here.

Shared Decision-Making at Johns Hopkins Bayview

Nurses play an important role in strategic planning at Johns Hopkins Bayview. Front-line nurses from every unit of the Medical Center, including Nurse Practitioners, serve on our Professional Practice Council (PPC).

The PPC is sustained by nurses who are formally empowered to make decisions about clinical practice standards, quality improvement, staff and professional development and research. Unit-based councils and ad hoc councils support strategic planning as well, and engage nurses throughout the campus through four core principles:

1. Accountability: The mutual commitment to positive patient-care outcomes.
2. Equity: The valuing of every role in the organization.
3. Partnership: Nurses' relationships with one another, the patient, or other disciplines.
4. Ownership: Membership in the nursing profession, clinical practice, and the work that nurses
do as individuals.
