Professional Model of Care
Our professional model of care delivery is the Synergy Model. We match patient and family needs to a nurse's level of expertise. The Synergy Model describes a patient-nurse relationship that supports the primacy of patients and families. All nurse-patient/family assignments are based upon matching patient/family needs to nurse competencies.
Within the Synergy Model and consistent with family-centered care, patients and families are active participants in the patient/family-nurse interaction. The interaction is synergistic. When the relationship is in-sync, then optimal patient outcomes are more apt to occur. Because we believe that excellence in care is provided through meaningful therapeutic relationships with patients and their families, continuity in care is a core element of our model.
