About The Academy's Expert Panels
Expert panels represent the working groups of the Academy. The expert panel structure allows the Academy to have a forum where Fellows with expertise in certain areas can meet. The primary goal of the expert panels is to further the mission of the Academy.
Expert panels review the current research and needs within their field to make recommendations on projects and/or initiatives the Academy should undertake to transform health care policy and practice.
The expert panels are intended to provide a flexible approach in order to address emerging issues within the nursing profession and the health of the public.
The primary goals of this work are to
- explore of trends and issues important to health care delivery and policy;
- recommend actions to the Board of Directors and the Fellowship;
- provide expert opinion on issues critical to the provision of health care and the well-being of the American people;
- support the mission and strategic priorities of the Academy and Board designated priorities; and,
- prepare Board approved and/or requested products and documents that reflect the synthesis of philosophic and scientific knowledge aligned with the strategic directions of the Academy, producing tangible outcomes.
