The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and dozens of organizations will convene Wednesday, Feb. 13
from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. ET in Washington, D.C. for Care About Your Care
, a national initiative that highlights what works to improve care transitions and reduce avoidable hospital readmissions.
Featured panelists include Mary Naylor, PhD, RN, of the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing and program director for the Interdisciplinary Nursing Quality Research Initiative (INQRI).
ANA is a proud supporter of Care About Your Care. The effort was launched in 2011 to call attention to the spotty quality of the U.S. health care system and what providers and patients alike can do to improve care.
To heighten awareness about care transitions and care coordination, ANA issued the position statement, Care Coordination and Registered Nurses’ Essential Role, and the report, The Value of Nursing Care Coordination, which highlights studies that show care coordination’s positive impact on patient outcomes, health system efficiency, and health care costs.
