Applications Open June 15th for Nurse Care Manager/Care Coordinator Standardized Core Curriculum (GLearn) Program

  • 14 Jun 2021

CTC-RI/PCMH Kids, with funding from UnitedHealthCare (UHC) and Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH), will again be offering Nurse Care Managers/Care Coordinators (NCM/CC) the opportunity to participate in a standardized evidence-based training program developed by GLearn. Eligible to apply are those NCM/CCs who work in primary care practices that have participated in CTC-RI/PCMH Kids transformation program or work in primary care practices that are part of a system of care.

The 12-15-week program consists of web-based interactive modules, weekly facilitated collaborative discussions, and the demonstration of skills through a case study capstone presentation. Participants will learn to apply key care management concepts within their primary care practice setting and organization. While the training costs are covered by UHC and RIDOH, learners are asked to commit to completing the training modules and meeting weekly with a cohort of other NCM/CCs. Cohort sessions will help in applying patient-centered medical home care management concepts with RI NCM faculty who will facilitate the learning experience. Learners will be eligible to obtain up to 18.5 RN CEU’s and 18.54 CCM credits that can be applied toward Care Management certification.

It is CTC-RI’s 4th year offering this program, and we are pleased to continue building a strong care coordination workforce in the state. If you’d like to participate in the program, please apply using the materials found here. Applications are due by July 23, and the program will kick off mid-September.
