Registered nurses working throughout The James as direct care providers, research nurses, advanced practice nurses, patient care resource managers and in numerous other roles bring together expertise in an interdisciplinary approach. This approach enables James’ nurses to bring innovative and collaborative nursing care to our patients that is relationship and evidenced-based care.
Evidence-Based Care (EBC) is a problem-solving approach to making clinical practice decisions that are vital to promoting positive patient outcomes. Our nursing experts integrate scientific evidence from well-designed studies with clinical and experiential evidence – along with in-depth knowledge of patient preferences and values – to make clinical decisions. The result? A practice-based environment that supports critical thinking and embraces new ways to advance safe, innovative and research-based practice.
Relationship-Based Care (RBC) is a cornerstone of The James’ nursing community. This care model pivots on recognizing three crucial relationships: with our patients and their families, with our colleagues, and with ourselves. It’s how each of us connects with others in myriad ways to promote and sustain a healing environment. Whether it’s offering a small act of kindness through words, actions or simply being there, or it’s performing a sound clinical intervention with competent, quality care, the heart of RBC focuses on just that: the heart.
