Sarah Sweeney, the Visiting Nursing Association of WNY’s senior director of clinical operations for home care, has been selected to attend the Duke University School of Nursing Population Care Coordinator Program this fall.

Population care coordinators help improve patient care by increasing engagement between the primary care team and the patient while helping to empower patients and their families with the information they need to better manage their health. The Duke University School of Nursing’s pioneering Population Care Coordinator Program uses evidence-based strategies to improve care while increasing administrative operational efficiencies.

“Sarah is one of 10 participants from other home care agencies across the state who will be taking the course this fall,” said VNA President Lisa Greisler. “She will earn a certification in Population Care Coordination upon completion of the coursework. It’s a great opportunity for her personally as well as for the organization.”

The program is offered to nurses and other clinicians as part of a Home Care Association Mother Cabrini Health Foundation grant.
