This week, CTC-RI is excited to launch the 5th year of the GLearn Nurse Care Manager (NCM) Core Curriculum Training Program. 22 NCMs and care coordinators from 13 different practices across the state will be participating in the program this year. As intended in the course design, the learners bring a wide range of experience levels to the program.
The NCM Core Curriculum program was born out of requests from the RI primary care community for more high-quality training for NCMs. Since the beginning of the program, CTC-RI has partnered with Geisinger to develop and implement the program. Geisinger developed online modules covering disease-specific content as well as care management and patient engagement skills. Each module is supplemented by weekly group discussion calls facilitated by faculty who have successfully completed the Glearn training program. See here for a list of program faculty.
A big thank you to UnitedHealthcare and the RI Department of Health for funding this important workforce development opportunity. This support allows CTC-RI to offer the program to RI NCMs at no cost. The 12-week course will culminate this winter with each learner preparing a capstone presentation.
