2 Health Care System Challenges Fragmentation Health care disparities Aging and sicker population Primary care shortage High costs

3 Fragmentation Lack of integration among providers System rewards volume, not value Result: lower-quality care and higher costs

4 Health Care Disparities Get fewer routine procedures Receive poorer care Die younger Racial and ethnic minorities

5 Aging and Sicker Population Life expectancy rising Baby boomers aging Chronic diseases increasing

6 Primary Care Shortage Rural and low-income areas particularly affected Fewer physicians entering primary care 32 million more people to get health insurance in 2014

8 RWJFs Commitment to Improving Care RWJF mission: to improve health and health care for all Americans Need to address challenges facing nursing to address challenges facing our health system

11 Campaign for Action EducationPractice Collaboration LeadershipData Campaign for Action

12 Education Increase to 80 percent the proportion of nurses with BSN by 2020 Double number of nurses with doctorate by 2020 Implement nurse residency programsPromote lifelong learning

13 Education Evidence –Significant association between educational level and patient outcomes –6 percent of AD grads get advanced degree, enabling them to teach and serve as PCPs, compared to 20 percent of BSN grads

14 Practice All practitioners should practice to full extent of their education and training Optimal care –Physicians, nurses and other health professionals work in team-based model of care delivery –Models of care maximize time that providers can spend on their respective roles and responsibilities to patients

15 Practice Evidence: More than 10 studies show equivalent patient outcomes when care is provided by APRN or MD for certain services –Includes two Cochrane reviews –Randomized clinical trial published in JAMA –Office of Technology Assessment No studies show care is better in states that do not allow APRNs to practice to full extent of education and training

17 Collaboration Integrated, collaborative, patient-centered health care teams Foster interprofessional education, training and practice

18 Leadership Nurses bring important viewpoint to management and policy discussions Prepare more nurses to help lead improvements in health care quality, safety, access and value

19 Leadership Gallup survey of 1,500 opinion leaders* said nurses should have more: –Influence in reducing medical errors, increasing quality of care, promoting wellness –Input and impact in planning, policy development and management * RWJF, 2010

20 Nurse Leaders in the Boardroom Survey of 1,000 U.S. hospitals* found: –Nurses account for only 6 percent of board members –Physicians are 20 percent of board members –Other clinicians are 5 percent of board members * American Hospital Association, 2011

21 Data Improve health care workforce data collection to better assess and project workforce requirements –Research on health care workforce is fragmented –Need data on all health professions
