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.
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.
