Patients and caregivers tell us that the journey home after hospital admission is tough. Poor transitions increase the risk of complications.
Together with Dr. Tara Kiran at St. Michael’s Hospital, we connected with 1,000+ patients and caregivers about their experience transitioning from hospital to home.
Their feedback will inform health care quality initiatives across Ontario about how to better support patients as they recover at home after a hospital stay.
Capturing patient and caregiver experiences is crucial to this project. For phase one, we’ve distilled their stories and ideas into a report to be shared with all involved. The next phase of this project involves working with patients and caregivers to group the ideas together into common themes, and ranking the areas that are most important for the health system to address.
