Safer Transitions through Patient and Family Engagement

3/15/2016
Location: HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital
254 Pleasant Street Concord NH 03301

During healthcare transitions, patients and their families are the constant. Engaging them in the plan of care reduces safety risks for the individual.
Using this simple concept can be an effective strategy to improve the transition of care for the patient along the healthcare continuum. This event is designed to be a collaborative program featuring area providers including Concord Hospital, Concord Regional Visiting Nurse Association and HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Concord. The discussion will include a case study review of the journey through the continuum for a stroke survivor and their family.
Program Objectives:
  • Demonstrate how engaging with patients and families can be used as a strategy to improve safety during transitions.
  • Identify areas where patients, families and organizations can improve communication during transitions.
  • Recognize opportunities and determine steps for improved communication and partnership with patients, families and the healthcare community.

Moderated by Tanya Lord, PhD, MPH, director of patient and family engagement, Foundations for Healthy Communities. This program provides one contact hour for continuing education credit.
