"By 2035, current primary care production rates will be unable to meet demand, resulting in a shortages in excess of 33,000 primary care physicians" (Petterson, et al., 2015). However, high-functioning teams that utilize registered nurses (RNs) to manage some conditions can help narrow this gap. Join us on August 16 for a sample of Nurse Visit types - vetted through the Nursing Innovation Collaborative - to bring back to your practice.
Through this webinar, participants will:
- Assess the need for RN visits in their practice
- Learn about four different RN Visit types
- Be able extrapolate successes and opportunities from the Nursing Innovation Collaborative
- Develop a plan to bring this information back to their practice for implementation
