2019 marked the expansion of Shared Leadership Council into the ambulatory care settings.
An in-depth commitment was devoted to exploring opportunities to ensure that SHC nursing aligned with the goal of inclusivity by expanding its structure into ambulatory care services.
Ambulatory Shared Leadership Councils received tremendous engagement with the development of 11 Service Line Councils and participation of 120 council members.
The Ambulatory Shared Leadership Council officially launched in December 2019.
"In bringing shared governance to the ambulatory care setting, Stanford Health Care is bridging those gaps and connecting nurses in order to create an environment of continuous dissemination of information and collaboration. By sharing new ideas and best practices, we can improve care delivery for our patients."

Ambulatory Care Services in 2019 Magnet Conference
Based on the Councilor model of Shared Governance, SHC’s ambulatory SLC is comprised of a coordinating council and 4 other councils including Practice, Education, Research, and Professional Growth and Development Councils. This shared platform of decision-making encourages nursing autonomy across all care settings to positively influence nursing practice, quality improvement, education, and nursing leadership.
In line with the Magnet Program’s emphasis on ambulatory care and outpatient settings in 2019, SHC brought many members of ambulatory care’s SLC to the Magnet conference in 2019.
While 500P was undergoing its path to activation, SHC demonstrated its commitment to be intentionally collaborative and inclusive of the ambulatory care services by sponsoring 70 RNs to attend the 2019 Magnet Conference, the majority of which were RNs from the ambulatory care service and or ambulatory SLC members.
Dale Beatty, CNO, VP of Patient Care Services, and Nursing Excellence Department in collaboration with Julie Tisnado, ambulatory Associate Chief Nursing Officer (ACNO), supported __ ambulatory care leaders (clinical to executive) to attending the Annual ANCC Magnet Conference.
First-ever Ambulatory Nursing Grand Rounds
In December of 2019, Ambulatory Care Services hosted the first-ever Ambulatory Nursing Grand Rounds with highlights from the 2019 Magnet Conference in Orlando, Florida.
Melissa Luces, RN, CCRN, Cindy Wu, RN, Belinda Lovo, MSN, RN, and Kat Phelps, RN, PCCN were among the ambulatory care nurses who were sponsored to attend the conference. They were empowered to be the pioneer presenters at the invigorating Ambulatory Nursing Grand Rounds.
The Ambulatory NGR turned out to be a significant success with over 90 attendees, who appreciated the opportunity to learn and network among their peers.
In 2020, the Ambulatory Care Services Department aims to host the NGR on a quarterly basis.
