School of Nursing students participate in national “hot spotting” initiative
Once again, Virginia Commonwealth University is among only a handful of institutions selected to participate in the national 2015 Hot Spotting Collaborative. The project, which involves students from a variety of disciplines, aims to identify and serve the small percentage of patients who account for almost half of total health care expenses in the United States. Last year, VCU was one of only 10 schools in the country to participate after selection by the Association of American Medical Colleges.
In September, the two VCU student teams which include SON students Molly Battle, Liz Greksouk and Molly Wacek, started working directly with medically and socially complex patients from the Metro Richmond area with multiple hospitalizations. Students attended a July summit in Camden, New Jersey, on the issue and will work on the project through December. The project is being coordinated through the Center for Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Care.
