Navigating New Frontiers: Nursing’s Role in Care Coordination

m Bookmark and Share

Care coordination is a complex concept which encompasses many aspects of care delivery, organization, and quality. Care must be coordinated not only within the practice setting, but between community settings, labs, hospitals and other locations providing patient care. In addition, coordination between nurses and doctors, specialists, family members, and others involved in treatment decisions is critical to providing the best patient care.

Nursing's holistic approach to care ensures that patients' needs are met across settings and providers and facilitating the delivery of quality care. As front-line leaders, nurses are uniquely positioned to take the lead in this area.

This webinar offers insights, case studies and strategies to advance nursing's role in the care coordination and healthcare transformation.

Learning Objectives:

  • Analyze the role of the registered nurse in care coordination
  • Explore strategies to position nurses for current and future roles in a transformed healthcare system
