Nursing Continuous Improvement

The UCSF Health Department of Nursing is invested in continuous improvement work to maintain and enhance our great patient, family, and Nursing outcomes. This includes a culture of inquiry that continuously asks “How are we doing?” and “Can we do better?”. Our continuous improvement work is focused around leveraging our thoughts and ideas to improve processes and add value. We utilize a model aligned with the UCSF Continuous Improvement department that empowers teams to review, assess, and improve processes. Within this model, we use Lean processes to provide structure and support for improvement work.  

All work is guided by UCSF Heath’s True North Pyramid which highlights the strategic priorities of our True North Pillars along with our Mission, Vision, and Values.
