NCCN 2020 Nursing Program: Improving Efficiency and the Patient Experience in the Ambulatory Setting
Feedback should be obtained from nursing staff regarding strategies and ideas for improving efficiency and experience for patients with cancer in the ambulatory setting. When evaluating the impact of strategies that have been implemented, outcomes that could be assessed include cost, rates of hospitalization and emergency department visits, patient distress, and satisfaction among both patients and staff.
This educational program is designed to meet the educational needs of oncology nurses who manage patients with cancer.
Following this activity, participants should be able to:
- Recognize the role of nursing staff in the ambulatory setting
- Identify strategies that could be used to improve efficiency and experience for patients with cancer in the ambulatory setting
- Understand the Professional Practice Model and how it can be used to improve care and outcomes for patients with cancer in the ambulatory setting
