Free Training Opportunity: Approaches for Successful Person and Family Engagement During Discharge

Effective person and family engagement (PFE) is essential to improve patient outcomes and succeed in a value-based payment environment. PFE is especially important during patient discharge to ensure successful linkages to outpatient care. It requires clearly delineated staff roles and responsibilities as well as targeted strategies to motivate individuals to achieve their goals.

In partnership with the New York Association of Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services, Inc. (NYAPRS), the Care Transitions Network is offering a free, two-hour training for inpatient providers to support implementation of effective PFE strategies.

Facilitated by NYAPRS Director of Training and Development Ruth Colon-Wagner, this training will help your unit enhance PFE by:

This training is designed for direct care staff of all disciplines, program-level supervisors and managers. It is recommended participants represent a variety of staff roles and levels to ensure buy-in and successful implementation across the unit.

Trainings will be scheduled with inpatient units . If you are part of an outpatient hospital practice and your inpatient unit isn’t enrolled already in the Care Transitions Network but could benefit from this opportunity, we would welcome their enrollment and engagement in the network.
