BSN440 was designed to give students a very brief overview of the case management role in healthcare. During the course there was discussion on quality outcomes, technology, care delivery and community needs.
Patient Advocacy is another option for many professionals who want to help patients navigate the healthcare system. These individuals act on the behalf of patients and/or their families in communicating with doctors and hospitals, clarifying options for diagnostic tests or treatment choices, and assuring that patient wishes are carried out when they may not be able to do so themselves. The patient advocate can be a spokesperson for the family.
