CHASS a Partner in New Nurse-Led Interdisciplinary Teams Project
Tuesday, January 05, 2016
A new program that aims to improve chronic care coordination for underrepresented and underserved populations will be a partnership between the University of Michigan School of Nursing and Community Health and Social Services Center (CHASS).
The project, developed by Donna Marvicsin, PhD, RN, PPCNP-BC, CDE, will utilize RNs to lead interdisciplinary teams.
"Nurses get it," says Marvicsin. "They understand the nuances." And that, in part, is why RNs hold such potential to improve patient care by functioning as team leaders."
The project is funded by a three-year, $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Health Resources and Services Administration.
