Care Coordination Fundamentals Certificate Course

 

 

Course Price:

$289.00

Course Description:

In the 2015 report Policy Agenda for Nurse-Led Care Coordination, published jointly by the American Academy of Nursing and the American Nurses Association, it was noted that “Nurses have been and continue to be pivotal in the development and delivery of innovative care coordination practice models.”

As these innovative models are implemented, primary care health professionals, such as Nurses, primary care clinical staff and alike, must have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to provide effective care coordination.  The development of the knowledge, skills, and abilities must be based on research.

The education in this course is developed based on the “Seven Domains of Care Coordination in the Primary Care Setting” by Kristy Baker, APRN-CNP, a Duke-Johnson & Johnson Nurse Leadership Program Fellow. She developed the list of domains utilizing an extensive literature search to gather evidence of the most important knowledge, skills, and abilities required for a care coordinator to be successful in the primary care setting.

This course is designed to provide health professionals, such as Nurses, primary care clinical staff and alike, to improve care coordination for patients with chronic conditions, behavioral health issues, as well as incorporating health promotion into their practice.

Course Dates:

February 19, 2019 to June 11, 2019

Course Delivery Format:

The course is divided into eight (8) modules. Each module will run for two (2) weeks. The development of care coordination skills occurs when knowledge and practice are combined. This Care Coordination Fundamentals Certificate Course will put knowledge into practice as participants are immersed in this interactive course. The education will be delivered in a virtual environment using a combination of pre-recorded didactic presentations, asynchronous discussion threads, and a virtual meeting space for a live discussion at the end of each module.
