This new resource provides the first scope and standards of practice for registered nurses in a relatively new role: care coordination and/or transition management (CCTM).
While these roles have been evolving over the past 25 years, there has never been formal identification, specification and/or publication of the scope and standards of practice. This publication will set the standard for excellence in the coordination of care, and is written as a resource for both acute and ambulatory care nurses. The Standards address both the clinical dimension and the management dimension of CCTM, and may be used as a tool to advance professional care coordination and/or transition management nursing practice, patient and population health, and the performance outcomes of health care institutions.
