Explanation of how the course differs from similar GW courses
A course emphasizing the transitions in care of patients from acute care to multiple care settings, including rehab, long term care and community care, serving as an educational response to health care policy changes. ACA has recognized the need to have a more seamless system with the emphasis on care coordination. Many health care systems have already begun to integrate care coordination into their services as payers begin to reimburse for care coordination. This course would be open to master's level students as an elective. The topics in the proposed course reflect the IOM (2003, 2011) competencies of patient-centered care, working in inter-disciplinary teams, employing evidence-based practice, applying quality improvement approaches, and utilizing informatics to prepare nurses to function in the evolving roles of transitional care nurse, case manager, nurse navigator and patient coach.
