Develop a 20-minute presentation for nursing colleagues highlighting the fundamental principles of care coordination. Create a detailed narrative script for the presentation, approximately 4-5 pages in length.
Nurses have a powerful role in the coordination and continuum of care. All nurses must be cognizant of the care coordination process and how safety, ethics, policy, physiological, and cultural needs affect care and patient outcomes. As a nurse, care coordination is something that should always be considered.
Nurses must be aware of factors that impact care coordination and of a continuum of care that utilizes community resources effectively and is part of an ethical framework that represents the professionalism of nurses. Understanding policy elements helps nurses coordinate care effectively.
This assessment provides an opportunity for you to educate your peers on the care coordination process. The assessment also requires you to address change management issues. You are encouraged to complete the Managing Change activity (listed under the Special Instructions section below).
Your nurse manager has been observing your effectiveness as a care coordinator and recognizes the importance of educating other staff nurses in care coordination. Consequently, she has asked you to develop a presentation for your colleagues on care coordination basics.
By providing them with basic information about the care coordination process, you will assist them in taking on an expanded role in helping to manage the care coordination process and improve patient outcomes in your community care center.
To prepare for this assessment, identify key factors nurses must consider to participate in the care coordination process effectively.
- Cite 3-5 credible sources from peer-reviewed journals or professional industry publications. Include source citations on a references page appended to the narrative script.
- Outline effective strategies for collaborating with patients and their families to achieve desired health outcomes.
- Provide, for example, drug-specific educational interventions and cultural competence strategies.
Include evidence that you have to support your selected strategies.
- Identify the aspects of change management that directly affect elements of the patient experience essential to the provision of high-quality, patient-centered care.
- Explain the rationale for coordinated care plans based on ethical decision-making.
- Consider the reasonable implications and consequences of an ethical approach to care and any underlying assumptions that may influence decision-making.
- Identify the potential impact of specific health care policy provisions on outcomes and patient experiences.
- What are the logical implications and consequences of relevant policy provisions?
- What evidence do you have to support your conclusions?
- Raise awareness of the nurse’s vital role in the coordination and continuum of care.
Fine-tune the presentation to the audience.
- Stay focused on key important issues with respect to the effects of resources, ethics, and policy on providing high-quality, patient-centered care.
- Adhere to presentation best practices.
