An estimated 44,000 to 98,000 patients die each year as a result of medical errors according to key findings in a report published by the Institute of Medicine (IOM-1). Lack of coordination among healthcare providers lead to medical errors; which often lead to death.

The monumental shift from a provider-focused paradigm to patient centered care has resulted in a more efficient health care system and improved care coordination among providers working to improve models of care.

Nurses hold the unique opportunity to lead the transition to care coordination and reap the rewards of improved patient care quality, patient satisfaction and the effective and efficient use of health care resource. This webinar will show you how to step up and draw attention to the integral part that RNs play in improving the delivery of care and prepare you for the path to care coordination.
