On occasion, there is a need to develop a policy that will be used by UW Health entities (UWHC, UWMF and UWSMPH) or a combination thereof. For UWHC, these policies are formatted in the same manner as a new policy but also include language that makes the reader aware that it is a policy used by more than one entity. The formatting and verbiage to be used is included in the attached document.
Wording/Formatting for Shared UWHC/UWMF and UWSMPH Policies
Consider the following when creating a UW Health policy:
- Is there an existing UWHC policy that can be revised to accommodate current need?
- It will be author responsibility at the time of any renewal or review to contact appropriate personnel from the other entities for input on revisions.
