Care Coordination
Care coordination is a two way process
Nurses and patients interact and nurses ensure the provision of quality care to the patients.
If patients are not treated with care coordination they may suffer from severe disease
During recent years much emphasis has been given to care coordination in medical settings. Care coordination is a two-way process in which nurses and patients interact and nurses ensure the provision of quality care to the patients involving the proper coordination of both. Moreover, quality services are provided to the patient. If patients are not treated with care coordination they may suffer from severe disease and other harmful effects like prolongation of a particular disease etc. Thus, nurses should follow the principles of care coordination in medical settings effectively.

Evidence Based Strategies for Nurses to Collaborate with Patients and their Families
Nurses play a central role in health care units and they are the main pillars for providing efficient care coordination in medical units

The institute for patient and family centered care has devised some principles for providing the quality care according to the patient needs
They deal with patients as well as their families and have built bond with them over time that is essential for an effective care coordination in medical units. Moreover, mental approach and behavior of nurses is very critical in providing quality care coordination to the patients
Thus medical staff and nurses should involve families of the patients during treatment. A case study was conducted to study the effects of communication between nurses, patients, and their families (Rebekah et al., 2018). Patients were suffering from cancer. There some evidence based strategies that should be adopted in nurse care settings for effective coordination care.

Strategies adopted in nurse care settings for effective coordination care
1st Strategy:
Apply those practices that are specifically concerned with patient’s family

2nd Strategy:
Nurses should favor and support the involvement of family members in patient’s settings

1st Strategy: Apply those practices that are specifically concerned with the patient’s family
Whenever a patient is admitted to the hospital, medical staff especially nurses should respect the integrity of family members of the patient. Nurses should treat respectfully and politely which will increase the confidence level of the patients as well as nurses. Sometimes it happens that family members are not welcome to visit their patients. However, nurses should ensure that family members can see their patients at any time. This two-way interaction between nurses and patient’s family members will be very effective in care coordination in medical units (Mackie et al., 2018).
2nd Strategy: Nurses should favor and support the involvement of family members in patient settings. There are piece of evidences that nurses discourage the influence and involvement of family members at different stages of treatment. Nurses are engaged in such activities that hinder the participation of family members while taking some decisions during treatment, etc. therefore, a positive and cooperative attitude of nurses is necessary for care coordination (Verloo et al., 2017).

Aspects of change management affecting patients experience essential for provision of high quality care
Extensive efforts have been done for providing coordination care around the globe

To strengthen the care coordination systems, nurses have been a major target

Nurses also help patient in their shifting from homes to the medical units by providing treatments during their travel
In any medical setting, coordination is necessary for the continuum of care. Therefore, extensive efforts have been done for providing coordination care around the globe. To strengthen the care coordination systems, nurses have been a major target. Nurses fulfill the care and coordination need of the patient by providing extra care and associated treatments for example in severe cases such as patients suffering from behavioral issues, chronic diseases. Moreover, nurses also help the patient in their shifting from homes to the medical units by providing medical care treatments during their hospital travel.

Special trainings have been given to nurses to practice the principles of care coordination around the globe. They perform care coordination activities in which they check patients regularly if they need extra medical treatment. Several organizations have taken initiatives to implement care coordination in the nursing sector. For this purpose, they have launched programs where nurses are given special instructions and layouts to provide care coordination. In these programs, nurses are involved in medical treatment of the patient as well as they discuss the plans for patient’s care with other colleagues. Several medical professionals and training organizations should be involved in these activities so that they could be exploited in a better way. Moreover, it has been reported that patients who receive care coordination activities have a faster recovery rate, they are not admitted to the hospitals, again and again, receive quality care protocols as compared to the patients who did not receive care coordination activities (Nembhard et al., 2020).

Key Aspects of Change Management
Patients have different experiences of patient-centered approach. Let us discuss the example of patients suffering from dementia
The key aspects of patient-centered care for dementia patients are improving self-confidence by establishing a friendly relationship with patients, valuing the suggestions of patients, fulfilling the needs of patients at every cost, etc. (Fazio et al, 2018).
Patient-centered care is essential for the effective continuum of care. Patients have different experiences of patient-centered approach. Let us discuss the example of patients suffering from dementia. For dementia patients, patient-centered treatment is the basic approach for providing high quality healthcare services. The key aspects of patient-centered care for dementia patients are improving self-confidence by establishing a friendly relationship with patients, valuing the suggestions of patients, fulfilling the needs of patients at every cost, etc. (Fazio et al, 2018). Moreover, in every medical setting, nurses should provide comfortable and friendly environment to the patients which will reduce the intensity of their pain. In addition, privacy concerns of the patients should be addressed. Patients should be provided relaxation in their visiting hours and the nurses should also try to overcome the language barriers with patients (Santana et al, 2018). Several health care organizations in the USA are working for this purpose.

Lewin’s Change Theory
Now, let us discuss some examples of change theory in nursing which are applied for provision of quality care to the patients
Kurt Lewin was the founder of change theories and has huge contribution in different organizational frameworks. He proposed a three-stage change theory in healthcare setting for identification of several factors responsible for providing high quality care (Udod, 2018). He proposed that leader should forgot previous or out dated knowledge and replace it with new information
Now, let us discuss some examples of change theory in nursing which are applied for provision of quality care to the patients. Change is the basic agenda of healthcare settings because with the evolution of new strains of different disease, nurses have to adopt inventions by applying several change theories. However, it is quite difficult for nurses to carry out these interventions due to several reasons. The understanding of change theories and management is very essential for nurses, especially for nurse leaders who are leading a group of nurses in a healthcare unit. Kurt Lewin was the founder of change theories and has huge contribution in different organizational frameworks. He proposed a three-stage change theory in healthcare setting for identification of several factors responsible for providing high quality care (Udod, 2018). He proposed that leader should forgot previous or out dated knowledge and replace it with new information. The same is the case with nurse settings. Nurses should try to learn innovative techniques and get new information which could facilitate the provision of high quality care because by adopting new diagnostic and treatment methods, the effective continuum of care would become very easy. He further proposed a dynamic of forces model. The first stage is un-freezing in this model. At this stage nurse leaders should try to find out new methods. The second stage is moving, it means that after finding a new solution nurses should have courage to adopt it. The last stage is re-freezing, which describes that the inventions should be practiced in health care settings so that the purpose of high quality care could be achieved.

Coordinated Care Plans Based upon ethical Decision Making
Nurses have to adopt different strategies and make sensitive and wise decisions in patient care settings

Nurses and other medical staff ensures the implication of ethical principles during their dealing and other medical activities they carried out in hospitals

At the same time, nurses have to face several ethical issues.
As we all know that nurses are the pillars of care coordinated plans practiced in hospitals and medical units these days. They have to adopt different strategies and make sensitive and wise decisions in the patient care settings for achieving the need of care coordinated plans. However, ethical aspects are being treated as serious concerns in medical settings, and nurses and other medical staff ensure the implication of ethical principles during their dealing and other medical activities they carried out in hospitals. At the same time, nurses have to face several ethical issues. For example, some patients have religious concerns about some medical treatment such as autonomy (Rainer et al., 2018).

In addition, sometimes nurses are not well aware of the ethical concerns regarding patients and medical treatments

All these aspects influence the proper care coordination and raise ethical concerns

Hence, ethical concerns should be properly addressed in care coordination plans and nurses should be given proper awareness in this respect.

In these cases, nurses have to go for other options which may influence the care coordination. In addition, sometimes nurses are not well aware of the ethical concerns regarding patients and medical treatments; they think that only the well-being of the patient is necessary. All these aspects influence the proper care coordination and raise ethical concerns. Hence, ethical concerns should be properly addressed in care coordination plans and nurses should be given proper awareness in this respect.

Impact of Health Care Policy Provisions on Outcomes and Patients Experiences
Policymaking is essential in every sector and it paves the way for the development of an industry
Example of China
By adopting this reform plan China established quality care hospitals equipped with the latest services and treatment methods.
Reforms produced fruitful results and eliminated the distress among the people
Here, I will discuss the impacts of various health care policies on patients. Policymaking is essential in every sector and it paves the way for the development of an industry. The same is true for the health care sector. Health care organizations and hospitals have made several policies across the globe such as free medical treatment, health insurance, health cards, provisions of free medicine, and health care reforms. For instance, in China, 10-year health care reforms were launched. The main reason behind these reforms was that most patients were not able to receive quality medical treatment as they have nit access to the quality care-centered medical units. These health care reforms were divided into two phase; phase one covered the health insurance plans, infrastructure for hospitals while the second phase covered the reforms for effective delivery systems in health care. By adopting this reform plan China established quality care hospitals equipped with the latest services and treatment methods. People were also provided health care insurance plans for longer durations. Moreover, access and supply of quality health care systems were made compulsory. Thus, these reforms produced fruitful results and eliminated the distress among the people regarding their health care concerns.

Healthcare policies have to do a lot with patient experiences. Medical units working without the boundaries of government proved to be more efficient than the government hospital.
They make such policies which address the needs of patient thus ensuring the effective continuum of care.
The private hospital take care of the privacy rights of the patients and provide friendly and supportive environment to the patient in every aspect (Fatima et al, 2018).
Healthcare policies have to do a lot with patient experiences. Medical units working without the boundaries of government proved to be more efficient than the government hospitals. The reason is that they try to provide best and high quality care services to the patients. They make such policies which address the needs of patient thus ensuring the effective continuum of care. The private hospital take care of the privacy rights of the patients and provide friendly and supportive environment to the patient in every aspect (Fatima et al, 2018). Hence, the level of satisfaction is much high in these medical units.

Awareness of Nurse’s Vital Role in coordination and Continuum of Care
Nurses are the key components of a health care system
The ability to communicate your ideas and message to others is very necessary
Audio and visual or videos messages are very effective.
As well all know that nurses are the key components of a health care system. They are involved in direct interaction with patients and adopt and practice effective treatment methods for care coordination and continuum of care. However, in any profession, the ability to communicate your ideas and message to others is very necessary. Similarly, nurses need to communicate. In the recent era of technological advancements, there are several tools used for effective communication. However, I believe that audio and visual or videos messages are very effective. Here you can make a presentation and be able to communicate your ideas with others.
