Program Overview

Transitional planning is a process that ensures that patients have the best outcomes as they move through the continuum of care. It has become much more than just the movement of the patient out of the hospital. It is a “process” that starts at the point of admission and follows beyond discharge and through the continuum of care.

We will review how to engage other members of the interdisciplinary care team in the process of planning for the patient’s movement across the continuum including verbal and written hand-off communication. Transitional planning is no longer a destination but a process!  Learn how to be certain that your processes address the complexities of the new health care environment. Ensure your alignment with your post-acute care providers.

Program Objectives

At the conclusion of this session, the participants will be able to:

  1. Define transitional planning as a process not an outcome
  2. Explain the continuum of care and the elements that most greatly impact on patient transitions
  3. Identify best strategies to transition patients across the continuum of care, including how to align with those case managers in the post-acute care level of care
