Facilitating smooth transitions across the care continuum can be the difference between successful chronic disease management at home versus long term care options. As healthcare professionals, recognizing the importance of transitional care is paramount to the health of the community. Effective transitional care can reduce readmissions to the hospital, decrease admissions to long term care facilities and decrease health care costs. Individuals must be linked to resources that will allow them to thrive successfully as a healthy member of the community to ensure they return and remain at home for as long as possible. In a healthcare culture where patient-focused care establishes how care is delivered, it is vital to include the patient and caregiver in the promotion of healthy behavior strategies. The aim of these strategies is the integration of healthy lifestyles that correlate to successful management of illness.
This symposium will showcase the outstanding research and best practices of dynamic speakers on the impact of considering individual needs in health promotion as well as how transitional care and health behaviors can influence the well-being of the entire community. Concurrent sessions will focus on pre/post licensure education; patient education in the community; pharmacist driven research on various topics including medication adherence, heart failure, UTI screening and antibiotic use; leadership; falls prevention; women’s/maternal child health; and behavioral health. Our final general speaker will address how vulnerability can be the key to deeper learning.
