Assessment 02 – Ethical and Policy Factors in Care Coordination
For this assessment, select a community organization or group that you feel would be interested in learning about ethical and policy issues that affect the coordination of care. Then, develop and record a 10–12-slide, 20-minute presentation, with audio, intended for that audience.
Create a detailed narrative script or speakers notes for your presentation, 4–5 pages in length.
Before you complete the instructions detailed in the courseroom, first select one of the following community organizations or groups:
• Gay and Lesbian Medical Association (GLMA): GLMA is a national leader in LGBTQ+ health issues and provides a free-to-the-public listing of LGBTQ+-friendly practices in the United States.
• Veterans Affairs (VA): The VA has an LGBTQ+ Veteran Care Coordinator (VCC) in every VA health care system to help LGBTQ+ veterans get the care they need. The VCC can answer questions, advocate for patients’ right to quality care, and help patients get started with services for LGBTQ+ veterans.
After you have selected one of the problems/issues from the list above, return to the detailed instructions in the course room to complete your assessment.Scenario
Imagine that you are a staff nurse in a community care center. Your facility has always had a dedicated case management staff that coordinated the patient plan of care, but recently, there were budget cuts and the case management staff has been relocated to the inpatient setting. Care coordination is essential to the success of effectively managing patients in the community setting, so you have been asked by your nurse manager to take on the role of care coordination. You are a bit unsure of the process, but you know you will do a good job because, as a nurse, you are familiar with difficult tasks. As you take on this expanded role, you will need to plan effectively in addressing the specific health concerns of community residents.
