Care Delivery Model
UAMS Nursing’s Care
Delivery System (CDS) is very progressive and allows the various
units/clinics/areas to choose which nursing principles they prefer as long
as the ‘essential elements’ within our CDS, i.e., (Patient/Family
Partnerships, Accountability and Allocation of Resources, Collaborative
Healthcare Team, and Leadership at the Point of Care) are utilized.
Depending on which unit/clinic/area the nurse is working, she/he may use
‘essential elements’ from primary nursing, team nursing, functional
nursing or total patient care, or a combination.
