Description

Transitions of Care: Successes and Discoveries

Friday, June 8th, 2018 – 8:00 AM

Nearly 20% of Medicare beneficiaries readmit to hospitals within 30 days of discharge. 50% of average beneficiaries are being treated for 5 or more chronic conditions, with 2 PCPs and 5 specialists across 4 different systems.

Sharing what works with high-risk populations is more important than ever.

Join CareOregon’s Jane Duck, RN, BSN (High Risk Populations Program Manager) and Mariah Alford, PharmD, BCPS (Pharmacy Clinical Supervisor) as they lead an interactive workshop focusing on recent discoveries and lessons learned across transitional care environments, including hospital discharge, Skilled Nursing, and Meds-to-Beds.

Learning objectives include:

  • Top reasons for hospital readmissions, and how to avoid them

  • How pharmacy can be an effective resource across care environments

  • Leveraging systems to provide stronger discharge insight and follow-up appointment coordination

This workshop will provide opportunities for discussion and learning with peers from all corners of the transitions process. Attendees will leave with practical tools and new insights to help improve coordination around high-risk patients.


This workshop is FREE and includes continental breakfast.

Attendance is limited, so please RSVP
