I've searched this phrase. The results mainly brought up "Clinical Practice Council" , Unit Based Council" , and "Nursing Practice Council". At the hospital I am at, we have a Unit Practice Council where each unit has an elected group of staff nurses, CNAs, Telemetry technicians, MSAs, and transporters. We meet once a month to discuss "quick wins" and renewal of current policies and procedures, along with a few other things. Then we have a Nursing Practice Council which meets 3x a year with one rep from each UPC and hospital leadership. I'm just getting started and I was voted in as chair person...What does a UPC primarily do? Our UPC seems more focused on "quick wins", rather than updating/ renewing policies and procedures. Quick wins (I didn't know what it meant) are things that can be changed/implemented on the floor with little effort, such as putting up laminated signs next to each Cavi Wipe location stating "not for use on skin". Also, we are allotted 1 day/month of 8 hours to meet, discuss, and hash things out. Do you think 8 hours in one day can be used productively? During our first meeting we proposed that we meet for 4 hours and have the next 4 hours allotted for committee time/ EBP project time, etc. during the month before our next meeting. Thoughts? Thanks for reading and for the replies.
