The role of registered nurses in primary care is undergoing pressures from expanded MA roles and from the cost cutting efforts of practices as they try to stay competitive financially.  "New Roles for RNs in Primary Care" was recorded in May 2014, and featured speakers from LEAP sites EOMA, Harvard Vanguard, and Martin's Point.

Traditional nursing roles in primary care have primarily been in triage and complex care management.  How are innovative sites maximizing the use of RNs to take advantage of their advanced clinical skills and education? Beyond triage, and outside care management, how are RNs adding value to care?  In this conversation, we look at the new and more robust roles in which practices are utilizing RNs.
