A Research Agenda for Nurse Led Care Coordination Across Practice Settings

February 15, 2019

Care Coordination is a Central Role in Nursing.  

Competencies such as care management and coordination, patient education, public health intervention, and transitional care are skills needed by nursing as health care moves towards a preventative care model.  When academic and clinical sites work together, the quad aim of improving population health, increasing patient satisfaction, reducing per-capita health care spending and improving provider satisfaction can be achieved.  A research agenda will identify opportunities and challenges for advancing nurse-led care coordination models and recommend priorities for demonstrating the impact and value of care coordination.
