Purpose: Nurses and other professionals are aware of the widely accepted Triple Aim approach to health system performance, but they may not be aware that a fourth is being promoted in the US. The Quadruple Aim adds the goal of improving the work life of healthcare providers, including clinicians and staff.

Triple Aim includes a focus enhancing the patient experience, improving population health, and reducing costs and is widely accepted as a compass to optimize health system performance. Yet nurses and physicians and other members of the healthcare workforce report widespread burnout and dissatisfaction, which are associated with lower patient satisfaction, reduced health outcomes, and possible increased costs.

Nurses need to be aware of efforts to reduce burnout and dissatisfaction among professionals—yet keep quality and efficiencies high in this rapidly changing healthcare environment. This webinar aims to inspire nurses working in a palliative and hospice care system to take a leadership role in transforming care in the direction of the Quadruple Aim.

This webinar will help nurses to recognize the need to adopt the strategies of team care and expanded roles to meet today’s healthcare challenges.

Objectives:  Participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss the mandate for transforming healthcare in the direction of the Quadruple Aim.
  2. Describe examples of nurse-designed models of care that have improved the quality of care and reduced healthcare costs.
  3. Identify opportunities within MJHS for transforming care in the direction of the Quadruple Aim.
