Provide a care transitions coaching program to ensure individual's needs are met while transitioning from the hospital to home.
Care Transitions Intervention® is also known as CTI® and the Skill Transfer Model®. During a 30-day program, patients with complex care needs and/or family caregivers receive specific tools while they work with a Transitions Coach®. Clients learn self-management skills that will ensure their needs are met during the transition from hospital to home. This is a low-cost, low-intensity evidence-based intervention comprised of a home visit and three phone calls.
Other topics include self-management, patient navigation, and patient-centered care, empowerment.
Note: Track health promotion program guidance during COVID-19 regularly for updates to program implementation and training options. Programs traditionally implemented in-person may be temporarily allowable by telephone or online.
