Goals of Care

At the National University School of Health and Human Services, the mission of the Nurse Managed Clinic Interprofessional Education & Collaborative Practice (NUNMC-IPE/IPCP) Initiative in collaboration with community organizations, is to extend the reach of healthcare delivery to under-resourced, inner city residents. Through collaborative practice agreements, the NUNMC-IPE/IPCP advanced practice nurses work closely with an interdisciplinary team of health professionals including: physicians; healthcare administrators; clinical lab scientists; clinical affairs regulators; informatics specialists; data analysts; and social work, integrative health and public health practitioners. The primary aim of this dynamic team of health professionals is to develop cost effective care delivery strategies for patients diagnosed with acute and chronic illnesses in the community-based setting. The objectives of the Clinic are to: screen, identify and provide health promotion/disease management services, foster community involvement in the health assessment and referral process, and provide culturally and linguistically sensitive health promotion/disease management health education.
