Care transitions are a key area for performance improvement and measurement for many national leading quality organizations and have been identified as a priority in national initiatives. When proper attention is not given to transitional care, re-hospitalization, emergency room use and medication errors go up.
What are the recommended processes that the research indicates should be followed for optimum patient outcomes? Where does the nurse’s role begin and end in the transition zone?
Join us for a lively exchange of information and opinions with host, Moira Edwards and special guest, Maureen Dailey, DNSc, RN, CWOCN, whose 15+ years as a home care nurse provides special insight into quality improvement in this area.
