Care About Your Care Video Continuing Education Opportunity
A component of the transitional care project that students in the RN to BSN program in Minnesota State University Moorhead will be doing this semester is in the following video. The goal of this video is to “inform nurses and physicians about the drivers of avoidable hospital readmissions and how improved care transitions may reduce avoidable readmissions.” It includes a panel of national experts which is moderated by Dr. Nancy Snyderman, the chief medical editor for NBC news. The panel also gives examples of successful transitional care projects. The panel and particularly Dr. Snyderman, are very cognizant of the potential impact of nursing’s role in the success of safe, quality, cost saving transitional care.
