This message has been cross posted to the following Discussions: Outpatient Staff Clinic Issues and Nurse Managers . ——————————————- I am looking for specific information about Nurse Navigator/Clinical Coordinator RN roles. If your organization uses a similar model where there is a Nurse who does education and care coordination (refills, faciltation of scheduling, etc) and a different group of nurses who access the ports and give treatments during a visit to the clinic (short chemo, for example), how have you defined the roles and responsibilities of these two roles?
What does the “Nurse Navigator/Care Coordinator” do and not do?
What is the caseload of the “Nurse Navigator”?
What are the assignments of the “Clinic RN’s” who see the patients? Are they disease-based? Do they cross-cover Infusion and Sedation?
Please feel free to share any additional information you have as well as your experience with transitioning to this model.
Thanks so much!
