Advocacy: From CFHA Nurse Members

Posted By Margaret Cotroneo, Patricia Gerrity,Gail Stern, Roberta Waite, and Cynthia Wilson, Thursday, March 22, 2012

CFHA Nurse Members


 Advocacy is any activity that supports a change from "what is" to "what should be", especially when the effort is made to help or support people who are vulnerable to suffering from physical, behavioral and social stressors. Therefore, nurses support the efforts to improve patient centered care by advocating for the integration of services that care for the whole person and family.

Effective medical/behavioral health outcomes can only be addressed by the consistent presence and coordination of a behavioral health provider wherever health care is provided. We applaud the work of CFHA as we advocate for the changes needed to truly realize Patient Centered Care.

 "Were there none who were discontented with what they have, the world would never reach anything better".

--Florence Nightingale
