Our Care Coordinators provide group and one-on-one patient education classes to help you understand your chronic disease including insulin administration, blood glucose monitoring, how-to use an inhaler and appropriate health education models. They will work with you to develop self-management goals and provide you with the appropriate tools to ensure you meet your health goals. As part of your care team, Care Coordinators play a vital role in promoting health awareness and ensuring your health management needs are met.
The Care Coordinator team can also provide essential connections to external community resources for a variety of patients’ needs including food, clothing, and tutoring.
They also refer patients to classes and programs available through QueensCare Health Centers such as the PADM program, Smoking Cessation, Exercise and Nutrition, and COPD classes.
