Care Directives

A care directive is an organizational policy developed in consultation with prescriber(s) for an intervention or series of interventions to be implemented by another care provider for a range of clients with identified health conditions or needs when specific circumstances exist. The purpose of a care directive is to provide safe, timely, effective and efficient client care and to optimize the practice of all care providers. Our practice support tools are available to help you understand care directives and the nurses and employers accountabilities related to them.
