Assessment 2 Instructions: Ethical and Policy Factors in Care Coordination

  • Select a community organization or group that you feel would be interested in learning about ethical and policy issues that affect the coordination of care. Then, develop and record a 10-12-slide, 20-minute presentation, with audio, intended for that audience. Create a detailed narrative script for your presentation, 4-5 pages in length.

As coordinators of care, nurses must be aware of the code of ethics for nurses and health policy issues that affect the coordination of care within the context of the community. To help patients navigate the continuum of care, nurses must be proficient at interpreting and applying the code of ethics for nurses and health policy, specifically, the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Being knowledgeable about ethical and policy issues helps ensure that care coordinators are upholding ethical standards and navigating policy issues that affect patient care.

This assessment provides an opportunity for you to develop a presentation for a local community organization of your choice, which provides an overview of ethical standards and relevant policy issues that affect the coordination of care. Completing this assessment will strengthen your understanding of ethical issues and policies related to the coordination and continuum of care and will empower you to be a stronger advocate and nursing professional.

It would be an excellent choice to complete the Vila Health: Ethical Decision-Making activity prior to developing the presentation. The activity provides a helpful update on the ethical principles that will help with success in this assessment.

Assessment 4 Instructions: Final Care Coordination Plan

For this assessment, you will evaluate the preliminary care coordination plan you developed in Assessment 1 using best practices found in the literature.

NOTE: You are required to complete this assessment after Assessment 1 is successfully completed.

Care coordination is the process of providing a smooth and seamless transition of care as part of the health continuum. Nurses must be aware of community resources, ethical considerations, policy issues, cultural norms, safety, and the physiological needs of patients. Nurses play a key role in providing the necessary knowledge and communication to ensure seamless transitions of care. They draw upon evidence-based practices to promote health and disease prevention to create a safe environment conducive to improving and maintaining the health of individuals, families, or aggregates within a community. When provided with a plan and the resources to achieve and maintain optimal health, patients benefit from a safe environment conducive to healing and a better quality of life.

ETHICS AND CARE COORDINATION 1 Ethical and Policy Factors in Care Coordination Stella Alpha Capella University NURS-FPX4050 – Coordinating Patient-Centered Care Ethical and Policy Factors in Care Coordination Script January 2021 ETHICS AND CARE COORDINATION 2 Ethics and Care Coordination Script The elderly people in society require significant health care and attention given they are weak. Nursing homes accommodate the aged and provide efficient medical care. Ethical standards and policy issues affect the execution of care coordination in a nursing home. Ethical standards serve as a guideline in establishing moral values in the nursing home. Policy issues are a crucial factor that impacts care coordination in a nursing home. Ethical standards and policy issues bear an essential role in facilitating high-quality health care to the elderly in nursing homes. Various governmental policies regarding the health and safety of a community affect care coordination. The government has played a significant part in the health care system, particularly the nursing homes, over the past decades, ensuring the equal extension of services for a large portion of the U.S population. Through its various policies and regulations implemented, the United States’ federal and local governments have a responsibility to ensure that the finances allocated to healthcare groups and organizations annually via different healthcare programs are well catered. The government policies are significant because they decrease the ailment burdens, reduce the disabilities burdens, and even reduce injuries. The government overviews all Americans’ general health concerns and issues, thus establishing initiatives that promote further medical research and public health. The Department of health and human sciences has set goals to improve patient outcomes and decreasing medical costs in nursing homes by supporting several new laws. According to Collins and Saylor (2018), one of the government policies that has influenced care coordination in nursing homes is Medicare, the most significant policy. This program works towards providing insurance coverage for approximately a 50million Americans. For instance, Collins ETHICS AND CARE COORDINATION 3 and Saylor (2018) state that in 1945, President Harry Truman reunited a congress responsible for funding U.S citizens in nursing homes. Medicaid is another policy implemented by the government to improve the coordination of care in nursing homes. This program covers more recipients than Medicare, such as disabled, temporarily unemployed workers, and uninsured expectant mothers, generally the low-income people. Another policy is known as the Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program (HRRP). It is an affordable care act program that needs the Medicare centers and Medicaid services to minimize payouts to care facilities that go through excessive patient readmissions. It services more than a 42million citizens in the United States. Most of them are from humble backgrounds; hence they need healthcare services to maintain their good health and satisfy their needs. Collins and Saylor (2018)
assert that the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was enacted in 1996 to protect American workers by permitting them to carry health insurance policies from one job to another. This Act also allows workers to register to a selected group of health insurance strategies to replace lost coverage and modify family changes like adoptions and marriages. Lamb et al. (2015) assert that the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act that was put in place in 2005 plays a significant role in nursing homes because it protects health workers who report unsafe conditions. These laws have been fundamental in the implementation of care coordination. Through these policies, the government makes sure that the care provided by the caregivers is not offered in silos. Issues such as healthcare costs that affect care coordination negatively are significantly minimized. In the U.S, most healthcare providers and care coordinators acknowledge the Act of accessing quality healthcare services and balancing cost as an unethical dilemma that they need to participate in continually. Policy Agenda for Nurse Led Care Coordination in US PPT
The reforms in healthcare have ETHICS AND CARE COORDINATION 4 brought a myriad of outstanding ethical issues to the forefront. One of the policies implemented by the U.S federal government is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that has resulted in ethical questions among care coordination. This is an individual act consisting of various reforms that the government aims to affect the care quality of the average American positively. Several societal injustices that affiliate to the Act exist, thus impacts the proper care coordination negatively, despite the myriad of advantages that is Act of Affordable care and Patient Protection comprises. Lamb et al. (2015) assert that the policy provisions under this Act restrict individuals that are guaranteed to get covered, with most immigrants being left out. This care act is expected to significantly intensify the national debt, meaning that the comprehensive health budget will negatively affect health facilities’ care coordination. The code of ethics for nurses provides a meaningful insight that depicts precisely the values they are supposed to follow. In definition, ethical codes are instructions that shape the behavior of the individuals or professionals concerned, and they also determine the values and beliefs that should be deemed acceptable. In this case, the code of ethics for nurses will be assessed based on its impact on the coordination and continuum of care in their profession. The code of ethics for nurses is very vital, especially in the advent of new technological inventions that have taken place in the medical industry. This is because, since new machines and software are used daily in nursing, it has presented new sets of problems. For nurses, i.e., the proper coordination in the nursing profession in a hospital setup is well maintained. The code of ethics directly impacts this case since the nurses are presented with a set of regulations and instructions to ensure the nurses’ proper provision of healthcare services. Policy Agenda for Nurse Led Care Coordination in US PPT
ETHICS AND CARE COORDINATION 5 A nurse’s code of ethics is an approach to express shared values and beliefs which apply directly to the nursing profession. American Nurses Association (2001) states that the nursing profession is one of the professions that experience the most ethical issues. The code of ethics for nurses indicates that the nurses’ level of care is top-notch since they have something guiding them along the way. In a nutshell, the code of ethics for nurses has positively impacted the coordination and continuum of care in both the hospital setting and any other places where nurses exercise their profession. The next part of this paper will seek to draw insightful evidence-based conclusions informed by careful consideration of social determinants of health and a precise and accurate interpretation of the factors contributing to health, health disparities, and access to services. Magelssen et al. (2018) imply that one of the most insightful evidence-based conclusions one can arrive at considering the social determinants of health is that individuals who come from the high end of the social ladder tend to ail from lifestyle diseases compared to their less wealthy counterparts. An excellent example of a lifestyle disease that affects affluent people is obesity. Obesity tends to affect people from affluent backgrounds since they have the money to buy fast foods and rarely engage in challenging jobs, which translates to less exercise, leading to obesity. After taking a look at the precise and accurate interpretation of the factors contributing to health, health disparities, and access to services, it is correct to conclude that in most cases, people that have fewer chances of accessing healthcare services tend to pay the highest price in terms of the consequences of late discoveries of some diseases such as cancer. This is because it is relatively easy to control and treat a disease like cancer (of any nature) when discovered early enough. In the case of people who tend to have fewer chances of accessing healthcare services, they tend to have fewer check-ups. This makes them susceptible to late diagnosis, which is fatal ETHICS AND CARE COORDINATION since when a disease like cancer is diagnosed past a stage where it can be controlled, it stops becoming a matter of if the patient will succumb. It becomes a case of when the patient will succumb. Ethical standards and policy issues impact the implementation of care coordination in a nursing home. The elderly require maximum attention in the provision of health care services. Governmental policies affect care coordination and raise ethical queries in the medical sector. Policy Agenda for Nurse Led Care Coordination in US PPT
Policy provisions bear implications and outcomes of care coordination. The code of ethics influences the nurses’ role in the coordination and continuum of care. Different aspects contribute to health, its disparities, and access to services when providing high-quality medical care to the aged. . 6 ETHICS AND CARE COORDINATION 7 References American Nurses Association.

There is always the responsibility to organize patient’s care activities and engage anyone involved in this care provision. Patient’s needs and preferences for medical services should be met on time. Through care coordination, we ensure value maximization of services provided to patients by conducting effective and high-quality healthcare processes. The fundamental principles of care coordination reflect the central role of the parties involved in delivering patient care. According to Hofmarcher et al. (2007), accessibility, individualization, interaction with the community, and solutions to systemic problems serve as the fundamental principles of care coordination. Accessibility focuses on the availability of effectual and secure health care by all patients. Medical settings integrate with community resources to enable patients from various linguistic and cultural groups to easily access the services. Accessibility strives for universal provision of health care services to all types of patients. Individualization, in this case, is based on the patient’s circumstances, needs, and strengths. Not only does individualization maximizes patient care-giving capacity, but it also looks to patients and include them in defining their needs. With individualization, the patient receives anticipatory guidance to prepare them for anything whatsoever regarding their health. Due to individualization, nurses respect and engage with a patient’s culture and customs. Care coordination aligns with the patient’s interactions with the broader community.

Engaging patients and their family members enable them to work collectively with medical staff to improve healthcare quality. There are several strategies to achieve collaboration between patients and their family members in care coordination. Policy Agenda for Nurse Led Care Coordination in US PPT
Nurses should apply reliable tools and skills for shared decision-making with patients and their families regarding clinical needs, goals, and procedures that patients are willing to take in their recovery. Medical settings should create patient portals that will ease information sharing and communication among the patients, families, and nurses. The patient, family, and clinician should be included in motivational interviewing that assist the affected parties in finding the internal motivation to push them in the recovery process. The establishment of patient education programs that involve both the patients and their families teach them on measures required in providing home-based care to a patient. Such effective strategies in collaborating with patients and their families accomplish desired medical goals. Care coordination follows a process for it to function effectively. Hofmarcher et al.
