The Department of Nursing - Professional Practice Model (PPM) - integrates the mission, vision and values of the department to direct care nurses (DCN) in their practice and guides the department in its relationship with the organization. The PPM gives nurses at KHCC the responsibility and authority for the provision and coordination of patient care while holding them accountable for their own practice and professional development.
The design of the model reflects the areas of major concern for DCN at KHCC and the core concepts that the service believe to be the foundation and the structure of caring that will shape our future practice.
The visual Model structure represents the components which building nursing practice concepts. We adopted two models (System Model and our own dynamic model). The KHCC Nursing PPM is drawn as a compass that helps our nurses to seek our ultimate goals.
