Concepts such as recidivism, informatics, care delivery bundles, quality and control policies and procedures, social determinants of health, clustered care delivery models will be explored. Systems improvement initiatives are investigated with the goal of preventing health care errors. Interdisciplinary and collaborative roles of consumers, legal counsel, and health care providers, including nurses, pharmacists, and physicians, are emphasized. Because of the dynamic nature of nursing and health care the specific concepts and issues explored will vary in order to provide topics that are current and contemporary in care delivery.
