OBJECTIVES: Expert consensus jointly authored in 2011 by the American Academy of Pediatrics, American Academy of Family Physicians, and American College of Physicians supports the use of health care transition (HCT) care coordination (CC). Although gaps in care are addressed in these practice-based implementation recommendations, such recommendations have never undergone rigorous assessment. We assessed the effectiveness of implementation on quality of chronic illness care and CC during HCT for adolescents and young adults...

INTRODUCTION: Effective delivery of healthcare in complex systems requires managing interdependencies between professions and organisational units. Reducing 30-day hospital readmissions may be one of the most complex tasks that a healthcare system can undertake. We propose that these less than optimal outcomes are related to difficulties managing the complex interdependencies among organisational units and to a lack of effective sensemaking among individuals and organisational units regarding how best to coordinate patient needs...

Background: Despite the regulatory impetus toward meaningful use of electronic health record (EHR) Medication Reconciliation (MedRec) to prevent medication errors during care transitions, hospital adherence has lagged for one chief reason: low physician engagement, stemming from lack of consensus about which physician is responsible for managing a patient's medication list. In October 2016, Augusta University received a 2-year grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality to implement a Social Knowledge Networking (SKN) system for enabling its health system (AU Health) to progress from "limited use" of EHR MedRec technology to "meaningful use...

Australia has an increasing demand for a sustainable primary health care registered nursing workforce. Targeting graduate registered nurses who typically begin their nursing career in acute-care hospital settings is a potential workforce development strategy. We evaluated a graduate registered nurse Community Transition to Professional Practice Program which was designed specifically to develop and foster skills required for primary health care. The aims of this study were to evaluate graduates' intention to remain in the primary health care nursing workforce, and graduate competency, confidence and experiences of program support; these were compared with graduates undertaking the conventional acute-care transition program...

BACKGROUND: There has been an increased focus on transition of pediatric and adolescent patients to adult centered care. For patients with rare and complex conditions, such as anorectal malformations (ARM), difficulties are compounded by the absence of structured transition protocols and lack of adult provider expertise. We sought to explore the actual experiences of adult patients with ARM and distinguish if there are factors that influence the ability to achieve satisfactory transition to adult centered medical care...

The prevalence of overweight and obesity among young patients increases with age, and affects one out of five at secondary school level. Ensuring continuous care of these young patients during their growth into adulthood is a true challenge, and requires a close collaboration of pediatric and adult care teams. Each step of this transition is precarious and needs specific attentions and competencies to be successful, as teenagers and young adults are simultaneously undergoing multiple changes and challenges...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Recent evidence has suggested physical therapist involvement in care transitions after hospitalization is associated with reduced rates of hospital readmissions. However, little is known about how physical therapists participate in care transitions for older adults, the content of care communications, and the facilitators and barriers of implementing evidence-based care transition strategies into practice. Thus, the purpose of this article is to evaluate participation in care transition activities known to influence readmission risk among older adults, and understand perceptions of and barriers to participation in these activities...
