A central part of her current role as senior project manager is the development of a suite of care plans specific to each clinical area, which reflects the needs and acuity level of each patient group. These care plans have been developed in a way that allows the nursing contribution to patient care to be measured in a tangible way using the Nursing Outcomes Classification.
