Description

The project will (1) design and plan the implementation of a nurse practitioner model for delivering primary and coordinated care to adults with disabilities who are receiving day habilitation services, and (2) evaluate the design and planning processes using a participatory and iterative approach. The project is a collaborative effort between a university-based research center, provider agencies, a nursing school, and government officials. Products include a logic model of the intervention, materials for training nurses to provide care and service coordination, and an analysis of the process to disseminate lessons learned, support a demonstration project and encourage replication efforts.
