Nursing in a Transformed Health Care System: New Roles, New Rules

Key takeaway message: Although the supply of nurses is likely to meet overall demand, the nature of a nurse’s job is changing dramatically. In redesigned health care systems, nurses are assuming expanded roles for a broad range of patients in ambulatory settings and community based care. These roles involve new responsibilities for population health, care coordination and interprofessional collaboration. Nursing education needs to impart new skills and regulatory frameworks need to be updated to optimize the contributions of nurses in transformed care delivery models

I have a #smartwatch would love to be able to use for this purpose.
Epic and Nebraska Medicine kicked off its use of an Apple Watch app that allows patients to view messages from their care providers, upcoming appointment details

National Time Out Day is an annual awareness campaign created by     +AORN and supported by The Joint Commission for its ability to increase awareness of safe practices that lead to optimal outcomes for patients undergoing surgery and other invasive procedures.  The time out is a powerful tool that supports a culture of safety and surgical teams’ ability to speak up for safe practices in the operating room.

Remember to give back!
Ever since the days of Florence Nightingale, nurses have been mentoring novices. Learn how Robert Wood Johnson Foundation supports mentoring programs to develop new nurse leaders.

Interesting!  What should you know about about #healthit   as a consumer.
This is where consumer education comes in. Listen to what the experts say, then do some experimenting.
