Patient advocacy is the support and empowerment of patients to make informed decisions, navigate the health care 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. health care 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 health care 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. Requirements for Successful Completion: 1. Read the PDF handout which is the chapter of the CCTM Core Curriculum that corresponds with this activity.

Transitioning patients from one care setting to another and coordinating their care ensures health care continuity while avoiding preventable poor outcomes. While the process sounds simplistic, the reality is that as patients move from one level of care to another, among multiple providers and across settings, the process can derail and communication can break down. An engaged health care team working collaboratively with the patient, family, and caregivers can improve quality of care, patient satisfaction, and patient outcomes. The importance of integrating evidence-based practice guidelines into transitions of care along with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of the RN in the CCTM role will be discussed. A patient scenario is used to illustrate how tools for transitioning from one level of care to another can be applied. Purpose Statement: The purpose of this activity is to enable the reader to understand the impact a mutually developed, implemented, and continuously evaluated transition of care plan has on quality of care, patient satisfaction, patient outcomes, and financial impact, and to understand the importance of integrating evidence-based practice guidelines into a transition of care plan.

The need for communication across health care settings is critical in improving patient care. Data show that ineffective communication can lead to negative events and unnecessary risks for patients. Patient acuity, co-morbidities, decreasing lengths of stay, and increasing financial pressures all contribute to the need for complete and timely transitions of care. This activity will review methods and processes of ensuring complete transitions of care, as well as challenges related to inadequate communication. Tools used by the RN in the CCTM role, which help to facilitate successful care transitions, will be introduced and discussed. Purpose Statement: The purpose of this activity is to enable the learner to demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required for cross-setting communication and transitions in care.

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 Statement: The purpose of this activity 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.

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 and 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 Online 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 will be 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. Requirements for Successful Completion: 1.

We all know nursing process. It is the essential core of our practice and has been engrained in us from our basic training forward. And we know patient- and family-centered care is essential in designing a plan of care that will achieve optimal outcomes. We will review nursing process, but more importantly in this presentation we will address how the RN in the CCTM role will enhance nursing process. Health coaching to facilitate behavior change over time, self-management, autonomy, informed decision making, accessing resources, and adherence to the medical regimen will also be discussed. Critical thinking is applied in every step; and the knowledge, skills, and attitudes will be identified with emphasis on the CCTM role.
