Collaborating Across the Care Continuum: The Cross-Continuum Fellowship in Nursing

Project Description:

Johns Hopkins Home Care Group, in partnership with the Maryland Action Coalition, will launch the Cross-Continuum Fellowship (CCF) program to help prepare nurses for changes in care settings (the movement of care from hospital to community). The fellowship will ensure participants are given proper exposure to and training in the social determinants of health that contribute to health inequity. It will also build a sense of community by engaging participants in the Baltimore area.
