Care Coordination Strategies: Presentation to Nurses

Hello everyone. Welcome to this presentation on care coordination. I will focus on the fundamentals of care coordination to help nurses understand their significance and role in effectively developing coordinated care plans within healthcare while considering the influence of ethics, policies, and technology on the quality of patient care. As nurses, we have a significant role in care coordination. Therefore, this presentation is ideal for explaining how we can ensure this role is executed appropriately while considering underlying factors within a healthcare facility.

As part of the introduction, we need to understand the meaning of care coordination. There are varied perceptions of the concept, with Conway et al. (2019) explaining that care coordination is the deliberate organization of patient care practices and sharing information with involved stakeholders to help achieve effective care. Therefore, it is a collective process that involves several personnel in the healing environment but remains focused on improving the safety and quality of care. In healthcare facilities with low levels of interdisciplinary collaboration, adopting care coordination amounts to a change process. Therefore, this presentation also encourages nurses to work through change by adopting and supporting it.

Strategies for Collaborating with Patients and their families

Patients and their families are essential in developing effective care coordination and continuum plans. Therefore, as nurses executing these plans, we must interact with them. Ideally, this creates a need for developing proper ways of interacting with patients and their families since they are not part of the professional personnel that nurses are used to interacting with. Principally, nurses can use two categories of strategies to interact with patients and their families. These are specific and broad categories.

Broad categories involve using healthcare technologies, medication management, and teamwork to engage patients (Hermann et al., 2019). Ideally, teamwork is the commonly utilized strategy where nurses incorporate patients and their families in care coordination teams. Therefore, they become part of the team tasked with providing medical care. Ideally, this results in adopting a patient-led approach to managing the underlying health issues, which is advantageous in offering care that meets all the patient’s needs
