This past fall I made a two year committment to belong to The Clinical Practice Council in our local health
care system. We strive to bring nursing excellence to our establishment.
I am also the designated Wound Care Nurse of the Rehabilitation Hospital. I hope to obtain my National Certification
in the next couple of years.
I am a part of a team which has an Evidence -Based Practice Project of "The Prevention of Pressure Ulcers".
It has meant doing alot of research and bringing the information back to the committee. We are looking to update our Policies
and Procedures regarding pressure ulcers the prevention of them and the treating of them.
The above led me to be asked to join the PI committee (personal initiative) which is looking at best practice
for prevention and treatment of ulcers in the Rehabilitation Hospital.
Whew I am worn out just reading what I am involved in. I love it. It is time consuming along with working fulltime.
