“Care coordination is the organization of patient care activities between two or more participants (including the patient) involved in a patient’s care to facilitate the appropriate delivery of health care services.” – McDonald et al. (2007)
The Patient Navigator Training Collaborative (PNTC) and ECHO Colorado are partnering on a study to evaluate how our trainings improve team-based care coordination skills. This project is designed to learn more about the effectiveness of these trainings in increasing self-efficacy, knowledge, attitudes, and skills related to team-based care coordination among participants.
How do I participate?
Register for PNTC’s Care Coordination Online Course or the Care Coordination ECHO Learning Series. (It is strongly recommended to participate in the course before the learning series.) You will have the opportunity to join the study during registration. These courses will be offered quarterly through 2019.
How much time will it take?
In addition to attending each session of the course or learning series, you will be asked to complete a 10-15 minute pre/post survey and a 30-minute pre/post assessment with a “team member” actor, via Zoom web conferencing. It will take about 1.5 hours total. You will receive a link for the survey before and after the learning opportunity and the pre/post assessments will be scheduled at a time that works for you.
Why should I participate?
You will earn online Visa gift cards for your time for each portion of the study you complete, up to $80 for full participation. You will also receive the results of your assessment at the end of the study. The assessment results will identify areas of strengths and improvement that you can use to improve your skills.
