Time management is a very important and difficult part of the RN role, it is difficulty to quantify most of that role.

This was EXCELLENT and spot on. Primary care RNs always struggle with fractured workflows when they are expected to always be available to manage phones /triage calls as well as complicated and time consuming care coordination needs of the patient..(in addition to many other things...) There is also the complexities of medical home model, teams and collocation which has its value but is not an optimal environment for focused telephone triage

Fantastic presentation! Thanks so much for your comprehensive sharing on the RN role! The information you shared is reflected in our own HRSA, NEPQR primary care RN roles in the clinics. I will probably watch this presentation again!!!

So many things run true with this and validate the important nursing role in ambulatory. Will get this on the agenda to discuss next time I meet with our CON colleagues. Also great points on how our electronic health records to not capture what is contributed by nursing in the overall care of the patient. Thanks for all your hard work! I am sure time intense to gather such data.

This presentation was wonderful. Definitely true in all ways for our practice. It is so important for curriculum of nursing school to be changed to account for primary/ambulatory care nursing. There are so many misconceptions of the work happening in primary care offices and the building blocks our teams put together to better the health of our patients.
