Module 1: Care Coordination and Transition Management: Introduction


The need for care coordination and management of transitions between Patient-Centered Medical Home providers, outpatient and community settings, including the Accountable Care Organization is often overlooked, episodic, and accountability for coordinating care and managing transitions between providers and services is lacking. AAACN recognized the potential of the RN to contribute to enhanced quality, cost effectiveness and access to care in ambulatory settings; and supported the creation of an evidence-based CCTM Core Curriculum and On-line Education Modules developed by experts representing practice, education, and research across the United States.

This module discusses the RN-CCTM Model, defines care coordination and transition management, identifies the nine dimensions of CCTM and the technologies that provide decision support and information systems for all dimensions; and describes the competencies necessary to support the role of the RN-CCTM.

There will be 12 education modules to follow as part of the CCTM Course. Nine will cover the evidence-based dimensions, two will cover the technologies (i.e., Informatics Nursing Practice and Telehealth Nursing Practice), and one dedicated to the transition from acute care to ambulatory care and the critical nature of hand-offs in ensuring patient safety and quality of care.

Purpose:
The purpose of this activity is to enable the learner to identify key components of the CCTM Core Curriculum.

Contact hours available until 3/31/2020.

Learning Outcome:

After completing this learning activity, the learner will be able to define care coordination and transition management and list the RN Care Coordination and Transition Management (RN-CCTM) competencies.


Objectives:

  1. Discuss the RN-CCTM model.
  2. Define care coordination and transition management.
  3. Identify the dimensions of care coordination and transition management.
  4. Describe competencies for care coordination and transition management.

Module 2: Care Coordination and Transition Management: Advocacy


NOTE: Slides for this session are contained at the back of the PDF handout which is available after module is purchased.


Patient advocacy is the support and empowerment of patients to make informed decisions, navigate the healthcare system to access appropriate care and build strong partnerships with providers, while working towards system improvement to support patient-centered care. Transformation of the U.S. healthcare system will require that nurses recognize and commit to patient advocacy as an important element of care coordination and transition management.

Professional nursing standards and competencies which support the RN-CCTM advocacy role are examined, along with a look at nursing's responsibilities at the system level to assure policies which optimize the care coordination and transition management needs of patients and families in the emerging healthcare environment.

Purpose:
The purpose of this activity is to enable the learner to integrate professional standards of nursing related to advocacy into the RN Care Coordination and Transition Management (RN-CCTM) role.

Module 3: Care Coordination and Transition Management: Education and Engagement of Patients and Families


NOTE: Slides for this session are contained at the back of the PDF handout which is available after module is purchased.

Patient education is a process of assisting individuals to learn about their health care and influence behaviors to increase health and independence. Education of families is important in supporting the patient with the expectation that patients and families will adapt and apply health practices to improve health care outcomes. To achieve this goal, patients and families need to understand health, illness, and influencing factors through communication that meets their level of understanding in a manner that is respectful and engaging.

A review of education principles and theories of learning which support the RN in the CCTM role will be discussed; as will methods to assess patient and family learning needs that promote an open learning environment in which they can work toward self management and optimal health.

Purpose:
The purpose of this chapter is to enable the reader to identify methods to assess patient and family learning needs, create learning opportunities, and promote an open learning environment in which the learner works toward self-management and optimal health.

NOTE: Slides for this session are contained at the back of the PDF handout which is available after module is purchased.

Self management support is essential in providing successful interventions to improve physical and personal outcomes for patients, their caregivers and families. This support is needed to increase their skills and confidence in managing their health problems, including their progress, goal setting and problem-solving.

Module 10: Care Coordination and Transition Management: Population Health Management


NOTE: Slides for this session are contained at the back of the PDF handout which is available after module is purchased.

Population health management goes beyond traditional disease management and incorporates both preventive, wellness, and chronic care needs. The goal of population health management is to keep a patient population as healthy as possible. The RN in the CCTM Role uses population health management to organize systems of care for populations; and to identify and implement evidence-based interventions and measure outcomes for both the individual and the population. Patient data including utilization data, medical record data, and evidence based measures are used to stratify the population and aid the RN in identifying patients for outreach. Interventions include closing gaps in evidence based measures and surrounding the patient with support to be successful in self-managing their health. A discussion of evolving health care policy development and its impact on regulatory and payer expectations and the provision of care to define populations will be discussed as will the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for the RN in the CCTM role.


Purpose:
The purpose of this activity is to enable the learner to integrate the principles and key elements of population health management into the RN Care Coordination and Transition Management (RN-CCTM) role.
