Unit Practice Councils and Chairs Committee
The Unit Practice Councils are unit based councils designed to discuss
ways to improve the individual units and address ongoing issues. The Unit
Practice Chairs Committee is a forum where the chairs of the units/department
UPCs come together to provide one another with input and feedback on shared
decision making topics related to clinical practice standards, quality
improvement, staff professional development, and research. This council
assists with the standardization of UPC structure and process and the
integration of best practices amongst all UPCs.
