Polk County Advanced Practice Nurses Association

Symposium in Washington D.C.___ Just FYI if anyone interested

Posted over 8 years ago by Michelle Rampersad


Timely and Informative Symposium!
The Nursing Alliance for Quality Care and the American Academy  of Nurse Practitioners are pleased to invite you to a symposium about the important role advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) serve in delivering higher quality, lower cost, primary care and the provisions for nurse-led medical homes under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).    
ACA provisions include establishment of patient-centered medical homes, a model that facilitates partnerships among patients, primary care providers, and other members of the health care team. Learn how APRNs and RNs can assume significant leadership roles in the delivery of care through medical homes.
This symposium provides attendees an opportunity to understand the provisions and accreditation requirements for patient-centered medical homes, hear first hand from APRNs about innovative nurse-led homes, view quality performance data already gathered and analyzed, and acquire positioning and marketing strategies for nurse-led medical homes in the new health care environment that includes accountable care organizations.
