Utilizing Faith Community Nurses for Population Health

Date: Tuesday, July 25, 2017

Time: 2:00 PM ET

Attendees heard the story of the innovative East Alabama Medical Center (EAMC) Faith Community Nurse program. Since 2001, EAMC’s faith community nurses have provided care services to vulnerable patients in their community, especially those dealing with chronic conditions. These services include preventative screening, education, and community resources to serve social needs. What’s more, these registered nurses create a bridge between faith communities and the medical community, supporting EAMC’s broader mission of providing holistic care through spiritual and physical healing. In this webinar, speakers shared details about the program, lessons learned, and insights for other essential hospitals interested in similar population health strategies.
