When Integration Becomes a Model of Shared Care - Lesley Batten
In this presentation we will explore strategic lessons learned from a New Zealand-based PHC nursing integration project that has resulted in the development of a model of shared care. This model is currently being scaled to other nursing roles and sites in the region. These lessons will be relevant for PHC nursing integration projects and demonstrate the benefits of co-production with patients' experiences at the centre. In addition, we will describe how the shared care model that crosses service boundaries enables nurses to release time to care, work to the top of their scope, and best use the total PHC nursing workforce.
