Cognitive Impairment and Care Transitions
March 27, 2018
The likelihood of unplanned transitions from a skilled nursing facility (SNF) back to a hospital can increase based on a patient’s comorbidities, particularly cognitive impairment. This complimentary CEU Webinar addresses the interaction between cognitive impairment and unplanned hospitalizations, both for short-stay patients and long-stay nursing home residents.
- Understand the relationship between cognitive impairment and care transitions
- Identify care plan goals for cognitively impaired patients in rehabilitation vs. long-term-care settings
- Apply clinical practice guidelines for cognitive impairment to your organization’s baseline care plan
