Stemming from the widespread overinterpretation of regulations, there’s a myth that “more documentation is better.” While data plays a part in improving healthcare, superfluous documentation doesn’t.
The workforce is more challenged than ever. As caregivers leave the profession—whether en masse, individually, or in between—the impact of wasted clinical resources only accentuates the challenges. Simplifying documentation can help reduce the burden on already overburdened nurses, reducing the likelihood of further resignations and mitigating the impact of the current staffing crisis.

- Inject common sense into the policy process to reduce duplication, clarify scope, connect policy with practice, and restore credibility with clinicians and others at the point of care and services.
- Streamline and simplify nursing documentation.
