Best Practices in Team-Based Care

  • 12 Oct 2022

Diana Mercurio from RIPCPC and Jessica Ryan from Thundermist presented on improving care of people with diabetes through team-based care at the September Best Practices in Team-Based Care meeting (formerly known as Nurse Care Manager/Care Coordinator Best Practice Meeting). Both organizations participated in a CTC-RI pharmacy quality improvement project and focused their efforts on decreasing diabetes-related emergency department and inpatient utilization. Although each team approached the project differently, both teams highlighted the need for improved team collaboration. Together with their team members, they provided examples demonstrating how they improved care for patients with diabetes through this team collaboration.
