and institutions decrease (Patel & et al, 2011). This is one of the reasons why continue education for nurses is so important that we understand current medical and health issues that affect our patients so that we can treat our patients better. Another reason to learn evidence- based practice would be to learn the mechanisms behind illness and how new innovations are applied to treat patients. When we take time to learn this new information, we are able to discuss this information with other health care professionals and form our own opinions on how these innovations could affect our patients and ourselves. Summary When clinics use iCARE components, the nurses are able to use compassion, advocacy, resilience and evidence-based practices to improve interprofessional relationships and patient outcomes. When the use of this system is enacted then patients, patient family members, nurses, physicians and other interprofessional members benefit by the decreased cost of healthcare and ensuring patient quality of care. Nurses have the responsibility to create a supportive and nurturing environment to improve overall patient care and facilitate positive interactions with other health care members.
