Indeed, the core business of the healthcare planners is to always make improvements on quality and efficiency of healthcare services. Thus, engaging in meetings where opinions, researches and other relevant knowledge is shared allows comprehensive learning, effective research and crafting or invention of better approaches to ensure patients and nurses enjoy the services and the health care environment as implied by Munhall (2012) and Torrey et al.
