Wellbe increased its support for orthopedic nurse navigators this week in a number of ways at the National Association of Orthopaedic Nurses (NAON) Annual Congress, as well as online.
Wellbe held an informal roundtable dinner for 22 orthopedic nurses to share best practices and innovative initiatives at their respective hospitals. Diane Jeselskis, RN, ONC, was awarded the “Ortho Nurse Innovator Golden Cape” for her team’s creative approach to solving problems within their orthopedic program.
Wellbe also awarded a scholarship for Kim Jablonski, RN, BSN, Joint Replacement Coordinator at Orthopedic & Sports Institute of the Fox Valley, to attend her first NAON Annual Congress.
James Dias, CEO of Wellbe remarked, “The NAON Annual Congress is a must-attend event for progressive members of the orthopaedic nursing industry. The Wellbe team is proud that we can contribute to the continuing education of orthopaedic professionals about patient navigation and connected care.”
This week Wellbe also launched a new portal for ortho navigators within the OrthoServiceLine website. At www.orthoserviceline.com/navigators, nurse navigators and joint coordinators can get the latest news and resources on building or optimizing a patient navigation program. An upcoming webinar hosted on June 15th will feature speakers from the Virtua Joint Replacement Institute on their navigation program, and a comprehensive eBook on the subject of ortho patient navigation is forthcoming and will be posted there.
