Speaker: Rosemary Henrich, DNP FNP-BC

Rosemary Henrich, DNP FNP-BC is the primary care provider for VA Southern Nevada Health Care System’s (VASNHS) Home Bound Primary Care Program (HBPC). This program uses an interdisciplinary team approach to provide longitudinal, comprehensive primary care to Southern Nevada’s veterans of any age with complex, chronic, disabling diseases that render them home bound. Rosemary sees herself as a practitioner-scholar and not only believes healthcare providers need to use evidence-based practices, but they also have a role in testing and expanding these practices in relevant patient populations to improve health care for all. Rosemary and the HBPC team have used this model of care to reduce incidences of wounds and lower hospital admission rates, while lowering costs of healthcare for this population. Most recently, she has reported the successful results of her doctoral study that demonstrated use of an enhanced teach-back methodology to improve adherence to treatment plans for chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) patients.  She has presented her findings to the geriatric program staff and medical staff at the VASNHS and at two different annual nurse practitioner conferences. She will have an article addressing the role of the doctorate for nurse practitioners published in an upcoming issue of the Journal for Nurse Practitioners. Rosemary holds a doctorate in nursing practice from Grand Canyon University.
