Care Coordination Advanced

The Care Coordination Fundamentals curriculum consists of four (4) modules or sections that are structured to build on one another sequentially. All front-line staff working in a team-based healthcare environment will benefit from this course. This advanced version of the care coordination curriculum introduces staff to chronic, mental and behavioral conditions, (i.e. diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, asthma, depression, substance abuse etc.) and helps them understand these conditions and provides participants with coaching tools on how to teach patients to manage their health.

Participants will experience a highly interactive class environment tailored to adult learners. Our approach strengthens the participants’ critical thinking skills by engaging them in discussion, individual exercises and group activities. Participants complete the course prepared to assist their patients in navigating the healthcare system, and to be strong, productive members of healthcare teams providing coordinated and patient-centered care.

This class will be held at Staten Island PPS, 1 Edgewater Plaza Staten Island NY. 10305.
