Utah’s Health Care Initiative The priority initiatives for UCAP were: Care Management – program and curriculum implemented for post BSN level nurses. Residency Program –Capstone combined residency to integrate graduate nurses in to practice. Innovative Clinical Placement – clinical placement opportunities other than traditional experiences to meet clinical educations outcomes and quality of clinical experiences for nursing students.
Objectives 1.Organize healthcare industry to assess the unique care management needs in Utah’s community. 2.Base curriculum on regional industry as well as national standards of care management. 3.Prepare a program of study that can be shared by other nursing and social work higher-ed systems.
CARE MANAGEMENT Industry Partners Intermountain Healthcare IASIS Healthcare HCA/Mountain Star University of Utah Health Care
The Gap: Survey Says... “Care management competencies lack an educational pathway.” THE PURPOSE To continue the profession of nursing as the leader of care management and population management— balancing cost, quality, and access. Clinical, financial, and psychosocial theory and experience to be successful in these roles.
Phase One Implementation University of Utah developed Program of Study and Course Objectives for: –Post Baccalaureate Certificate –Master’s track (approved by Utah Board of Regents and UofU Academic Senate)
Phase Two Expanding to Interdisciplinary Industry identified expert care managers U of U enrolled first Cohort at the U of U from these industry experts Expand the certificate to an Interdisciplinary status for nurses, social workers and other healthcare professions
Phase Three Sharing with other State Universities Programs of Study and Course Objectives for Certificate Program shared with partnering Universities. Partnering Universities taking POS and course approvals through their own institution processes. Partnering universities collaborating on shared faculty load, payment from student to teaching institution per course.
Best Practices Already connected groups – Education and Industry healthcare leaders already meeting in one forum Using what we have – The CON already had structure of certificate and Master’s programs in other specialties Recognition and Support – Recognize, call-out, support the progress noted
Challenges Continued connection with partners for next steps Identifying other strengths in other facilities to support the goals
Conclusion Q&A Or share your State’s current initiatives
