Care Ecosystem Nurse Care Manager Training
The Care Ecosystem model was originally designed for health care navigators to provide support to persons with dementia and their caregivers. This model has been adapted by an experienced group of nurse care managers and dementia experts for use by iCMP nurse care managers. The following modules present the adapted Care Eco models, serving as the pre-requisite to live training that will occur in January.
