NEMG initiates APC Council

Kathleen Bonaventura, DNP, APRN-BC, and Kelly Radecki APRN-BC, recently spearheaded the creation of the Advanced Practice Clinician (APC) Council at Northeast Medical Group. Each region that NEMG serves will have a council to represent the various primary and specialty care areas APCs work in.

“There is a growing demand to provide access to quality healthcare and advance population health goals in a cost-effective manner,” said Bonaventura. “Using APCs to their fullest scope of practice and the top of their licenses will help achieve those goals.”

APC Council objectives include:

  • Advancing and optimizing the role of APCs throughout NEMG
  • Developing marketing initiatives to increase knowledge, use and recognition of APCs
  • Improving patient access to quality care
  • Fostering professional growth
  • Engaging APCs to advance NEMG’s strategic goals
  • Developing processes for new APC mentorship
  • Promoting communication throughout the various NEMG regions
