Joelle Fathi, DNR, RN, ARNP, CTTS, will hold a lecture entitled “We Have Arrived: Preparing Healthcare Providers for Collaborative Practice and Programmatic Advancement of Telehealth” at 6 p.m. on April 29 in the Egan School of Nursing and Health Studies Auditorium. 

Much of Dr. Fathi’s clinical work, leadership, and advocacy in the past decade has focused on the development and advancement of care delivery models including telehealth, with nursing at the helm. In her lecture, Dr. Fathi will discuss her model of collaborative care and the use of telehealth to improve access to care. Telehealth is the use of digital information and technologies to access healthcare services remotely; it has risen in popularity within the medical field in recent years.

The majority of Dr. Fathi’s career was spent working alongside other nurses, caring for patients across the continuum of acute illness and chronic disease management. Her caliber and rich background are reflected in everything she does, especially her continued work with research and clinical practice.

Currently, Dr. Fathi serves on the American Nurses Association Telehealth/Connected Health Committee, the Washington State Telehealth Collaborative, the steering committee for the American Cancer Society National Lung Cancer Roundtable, and the Tobacco Treatment Guidelines Committee for the American Thoracic Society. 

According to Dr. Joyce Shea, associate dean for Graduate Studies and principal investigator on the HRSA-funded EDICT Program, “This three-year grant has allowed us in the Egan School to develop skills in integrated primary care and behavioral health services with a select group of our Family Nurse Practitioner and Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner students. Dr. Fathi’s lecture will provide a culminating presentation for all of our students and clinical partners on the value of integrated, or collaborative, care delivery and the centrality of telehealth in reaching the goals of that system of care.”
