Abstract

The role of ambulatory nursing is diverse, and the impact on patient outcomes is difficult to measure. The concept of care coordination is an important focus for the ambulatory nurse. We describe the efforts to implement the Cardiac Care Coordination Measurement Tool to document and quantify care coordination activities in a pediatric cardiac ambulatory setting.
