Advanced Practice Provider Center appoints 14 to APP Council

The UNC Advanced Practice Provider (APP) Center is pleased to announce the appointment of 14 APPs to the APP Council.

The APP Advisory Council will consist of 7 NPs from various areas of practice including adult and pediatric inpatient, critical care, and ambulatory services; 3 PAs to encompass the inpatient, ambulatory and surgical areas; 1 CNM, 1 CPP, and 2 CRNAs. These individuals represent various APP disciplines as a reflection of their distribution across the UNC Health Care System.

The Council works with the APP Director, Betsy Bryant Shilliday, to provide support, guidance and recognition to existing and emerging practices of APPs as well as coordinate and improve integration of APPs across the inpatient and ambulatory settings at UNC Medical Center in Chapel Hill and surrounding community. Areas of focus will include strategic planning, human resource coordination, credentialing, competency, education, compliance, quality assessment, consistency and expectations of patient services delivered by APPs. The Council will meet once a month. Please contact any of these council members to discuss areas you feel need to be addressed as an APP.
