Patient- and family-centered care is essential in designing a plan of care. A pre-visit chart review and visit planning will be discussed, as will the need for performing a comprehensive needs assessment of the patient to appropriately develop a plan for interventions founded in evidence-based guidelines. The RN in the CCTM role recognizes the integral part patients, families, and caregivers have in ensuring the health and well-being of patients and is aware that engaging patients and their families in care plan development improves patient outcomes and increases patient and family satisfaction, restoration of dignity and control, and better management of resource allocation results. The ability to identify gaps in care, utilize motivational interviewing, and the importance of the multidisciplinary collaboration across the continuum of care will be addressed in this activity. Purpose Statement: The purpose of this activity is to enable the learner to demonstrate the ability to develop, implement, and provide ongoing management of a comprehensive plan of care based upon the individual patient’s values, preferences, and needs in partnership with the primary care provider and larger interdisciplinary care team. Requirements for Successful Completion: 1. Read the PDF handout which is the chapter of the CCTM Core Curriculum that corresponds with this activity. The Care Coordination and Transition Management Core Curriculum was produced by the American Academy of Ambulatory Care Nursing (AAACN). 2. Complete the activity in its entirety. 3. Complete the online CNE evaluation. Faculty, Planners and Authors Conflict of Interest Disclosure: Faculty, planners, and authors have no disclosures to declare.

Population health management goes beyond traditional disease management and incorporates both preventive, wellness, and chronic care needs. The goal of population health management is to keep a patient population as healthy as possible. The RN in the CCTM Role uses population health management to organize systems of care for populations and to identify and implement evidence-based interventions and measure outcomes for both the individual and the population. Patient data including utilization data, medical record data, and evidence-based measures are used to stratify the population and aid the RN in identifying patients for outreach. Interventions include closing gaps in evidence-based measures and surrounding the patient with support to be successful in self-managing their health. A discussion of evolving health care policy development and its impact on regulatory and payer expectations and the provision of care to define populations will be discussed, as will the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for the RN in the CCTM role. Purpose Statement: The purpose of this activity is to enable the learner to integrate the principles and key elements of population health management into the RN Care Coordination and Transition Management (RN-CCTM) role.

Self-management support is essential in providing successful interventions to improve physical and personal outcomes for patients, their caregivers, and families. This support is needed to increase their skills and confidence in managing their health problems, including their progress, goal setting, and problem-solving. We must emphasize and support their self-reliance in dealing with their roles and the emotional management of their conditions. The RN in the CCTM role recognizes and supports the essential function patients, caregivers, and families have in ensuring the health and well-being of the patient and in integrating all roles. The knowledge, skills, and attitudes related to this dimension will be discussed in order to identify how the RN in CCTM can provide support for self-management. Purpose Statement: The purpose of this learning activity is to enable the learner to demonstrate the primary components of self-management support, including the importance of a comprehensive needs assessment, common strategies for collaborative goal setting, and concepts important to self-management.

Teamwork and collaboration are dynamic processes involving health care professionals sharing common health care goals and working toward a common end in assessing, planning, implementing, or evaluating patient care. A focus on type of care and how that care is delivered to patients and their caregivers and family is of utmost importance, and must be delivered by strong interprofessional teams to be effective. The Institute of Medicine has emphasized the key role nurses play not just as members of interprofessional teams, but also as leaders within the team. Discussed will be the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for the nurse in the RN-CCTM role and the team-based best practices for innovative collaboration that result in positive patient care processes and outcomes. Purpose Statement: The purpose of this activity is to enable the learner to apply effective teamwork and collaboration skills into the RN Care Coordination and Transition Management (RN-CCTM) role.
