INQRI Grantee Presents as Part of Health Policy Seminar Series

INQRI grantee Doug Wholey recently presented the results of his INQRI project, "Multidisciplinary Organization and Outcomes for Chronic Heart Failure Patients in the VA" during the University of Minnesota's Health Policy and Management Seminar and Lecture Series.

Wholey co-led a team with Joanne Disch to test a theory of the effect of nurse-physician co-leadership, the effective modeling by nurses and physicians of individual role behaviors and a strong shared inter-professional relationship, in chronic heart failure (CHF) care groups in Veterans Health Administration (VHA) medical centers. The outcomes were waste in care processes, patient outcomes of receiving dietary and medication instructions at discharge, adult smoking cessation advice/counseling, and readmissions and provider outcomes of nurse burnout and CHF knowledge.
