Navigating New Frontiers: Nursing's Role in Care Coordination

Eileen Carlson, JD, RN and Maureen Dailey, DNSc, RN, CWOCN



Care coordination is a complex concept which encompasses many aspects of care delivery, organization, and quality. Care must be coordinated not only within the practice setting, but between it and community settings, labs, specialists and hospitals.

Nursing’s holistic approach to care ensures that patients’ needs are met across settings and providers and facilitating the delivery of quality care. As front line leaders, nurses are uniquely positioned to take the lead in this area.

Purpose/Goal: The purpose of this webinar is to offer insights, case studies and strategies to advance nursing’s role in the care coordination and healthcare transformation.


The learning objectives for this webinar are to:
1. Analyze the role of the registered nurse in care coordination.
2. Explore strategies to position nurses for current and future roles in a transformed healthcare system.
