Care transitions occur when a patient/client shifts from one practice setting to another (such as from hospital to home) which may be a vulnerable and confusing time for patients/clients and health care providers alike as necessary information may be missing or inaccurate leading to possible adverse events. This course will provide health care providers with strategies and tools to improve the flow of necessary information so that proper care is provided throughout the care continuum. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA. This course is open captioned.
