California Nurse-Led Hospital Discharge Learning Collaborative
When it comes to quality improvement efforts in health care, nurses traditionally have been “brought along for the ride.” A new project aims to put nurses in the driver’s seat. An eight-hospital coalition brings together a multidisciplinary team at each hospital to create and test innovative discharge planning initiatives. Each team is led by a nurse, with the goal of establishing nurses as leaders with the confidence to generate change.
Children with health complexity face unique medical and social factors that impact their health and engagement of health care services. Health systems play an important role in addressing both factors to build health and resilience.
A wide range of issues must be addressed to improve the system of care for children with special health care needs. In a recent webinar, staff members of the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health presented an overview of topics that are a priority and related work that currently is under way to improve the system.
Join us for a webinar that will feature a forthcoming issue brief that highlights how health systems can address health and resilience for children with health complexity through system and practice-level data.
