Care Coordination and Transition Management: Cross Setting Communications and Care TransitionsCE
Produced by: AAACN - American Academy of Ambulatory Care Nursing
The need for communication across health care settings is critical in improving patient care. Data show that ineffective communication can lead to negative events and unnecessary risks for patients. Patient acuity, co-morbidities, decreasing lengths of stay, and increasing financial pressures all contribute to the need for complete and timely transitions of care. This activity will review methods and processes of ensuring complete transitions of care, as well as challenges related to inadequate communication. Tools used by the RN in the CCTM role, which help to facilitate successful care transitions, will be introduced and discussed. Purpose Statement: The purpose of this activity is to enable the learner to demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required for cross-setting communication and transitions in care.
