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.
Nursingís holistic approach to care ensures that patientsí 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 nursingís role in the care coordination and healthcare transformation.
