This course examines the reasons why many consumers do poorly when they are moved from one care setting to another, and suggests some models of care transitioning that have been shown to work well. The potential for problems when people are moved between care settings is great: medical records do not necessarily follow the patient, and despite modern technologies that facilitate the transmission of medical records, there is no unified system that ensures that medical information in one care setting is immediately available in the new setting. Most importantly for continuity of care, the consumer and caregiver are often inadequately informed about the need for changes in medication, diet, or daily health habits, and about how to be alert for changes in symptoms.

After successfully completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe how health care policy and law affect older adults
  • Identify the similarities and differences between the care transitions models discussed in the course
  • Explain how culture, ethnicity, and health literacy impact care transitioning
