Remembering Joyce Clifford

A little over a week ago, Joyce C. Clifford, PhD, RN, FAAN, a respected nurse researcher and colleague of many INQRI grantees, passed away at age 76. Dr. Clifford advocated a partnership of equals between doctors and nurses in the treatment of patients, and introduced the "primary nursing" model in 1975 at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston.
