A Team Approach to Nursing Care Delivery
Tactics for Working Better Together
May 23rd, 2:00-3:00 pm EST
Today's challenges demand a different approach to how we think about care delivery. Healthcare leaders are now beginning to understand the need for change. In a recent Models of Care Insight Study, 66% of leaders surveyed see a need for improvement, and 70% now consider changing their model.
Current healthcare delivery models rely on the availability of many nurses and are unsustainable. Even with an increase in RN enrollments, the gap between the number of nurses needed and the number available continues to grow.
Outside of a few specialty areas, future care delivery models will necessitate innovative team-based approaches with professionals and support staff all working at the top of their scope of practice. While we once had the luxury of assigning nurses to non-nursing tasks, the situation has changed, and we no longer can. Yet, the transition to a team or collaborative care model is challenging despite the need. It is like trying to build a plane while flying with a full load of passengers.
In this interactive webinar, we look at redesigning care delivery to a team-based model. Our topics include the forces driving change, the redesign process, resetting the nurse manager role, teaching nurses to lead teams, and strategies to promote effective teamwork.
- Describe the forces driving a need for change from a primary nursing care model to a team-based model.
- Provide a roadmap to redesigning care delivery.
- Discuss resetting the role of the manager from a traditional leader to a team coach.
- Identify strategies to educate nurses to lead teams.
- Discuss best practices in building effective work teams.
