Shared Governance

HFAH shared governance 2017

The Henry Ford Allegiance Health Shared Governance embraces the concept of shared leadership and shared decision-making, ensuring that nurses at all levels and from all practice areas are involved in decisions affecting their practice environment.

Our nursing shared governance structure, implemented across the organization, is a framework that empowers nurses with autonomy in the clinical & professional nursing practice. The program encompasses both inpatient and outpatient areas.
