National readmission rates are holding steady and the influx of new post-ACA patients is starting to significantly burden the healthcare system. With hospitals under the microscope more than ever before, novel and underused approaches to transitional care are emerging as possible solutions to this potential utilization crisis. In this webinar, we will make the case for how social work is uniquely poised to serve a critical role in this environment due to the comprehensive lens it brings to patient assessment and intervention. We will specifically discuss the Bridge Model of transitional care, a social work-based transitional care intervention designed for older adults discharged from an inpatient hospital stay.
CareCases, an educational partnership between CaseNetwork and NTOCC, provides a full curriculum to teach team-based collaboration, competency skills and best practices for patient transitions.
