Chris Page has been a nurse for 24 years. She has worked in Australia, New Zealand and Britain, including nine years as a medical charge nurse. In 1993, in her role as clinical support for a division of Health Waikato, a New Zealand Crown Health Enterprise, Chris was responsible for developing and introducing integrated clinical pathways. Following New Zealand's health reforms and health restructuring she took up her current role as policy facilitator for Health Waikato. Chris's passion is to ensure nursing input is acknowledged as an integral part of client care. She challenges nurses to evaluate whether the nursing theories of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s are an appropriate basis for current nursing practice. Chris believes health organisations can only benefit from adopting case management and using critical pathways to co-ordinate and facilitate the efficient and effective management of patients' episodes of care.
