Overview

In this quantitative, observational study, we compare 2017 data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS), to observe how youth who identify as Gay, Lesbian, Gay, or Bisexual use heroin, injected drugs, and prescriptions in comparison to youth that identify as straight across 3 geographies: New York State, California and Washington DC.  By making observations across three geographic areas, we can explore gender, ethnic, and grade level determinants of increased incidence of substance abuse activities.  This study aims to foster dialog between educational practitioners and public health researchers to better collaborate for development of a school-based drug prevention framework.



Learning Objectives

- Contribute to innovative ways of thinking when it comes to elevating and addressing school-based support networks.

- Assist researchers and practitioners in identifying the LGBT exposure-to-opioid use segments.

- Generate new knowledge on how to better develop demographic- and grade- specific intervention strategies that incorporate mental health service.

    Overview

    The United States healthcare has moved from an illness based model to community health-focused preventative model of care, and care coordination and transition management have become the cornerstones of ambulatory care nursing practice. Care coordination maximizes the value of services delivered to patients by facilitating appropriate, efficient, safe and high-quality patient experiences and improved outcomes. Utilizing best practices a Northwell Health ambulatory care site, has implemented a successful care coordination program. The upcoming generation of nurses must be equipped with a strong knowledge base in this essential concept. Threading the elements of care coordination throughout the curriculum will enable students to build on these concepts and be adequately prepared with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to successfully manage and coordinate care for patients.



    Learning Objectives

    -  Identify crucial care coordination interventions that have become the cornerstone of public health care.

    -  Describe the benefits of care coordination methods in the care of underserved, vulnerable populations.

    -  Discuss the value of incorporating care coordination concepts into healthcare education programs with a focus on prelicensure nursing curricula.
