Older adults transitioning among care settings, such as from the hospital to home, especially those with multiple co-morbidities, are particularly vulnerable. The focus over the years has been to decrease health complications in older adults by increasing quality of care and communication during transitions to other care settings. This teaching strategy can be used to enhance student learning in beginning and/or advanced pre-licensure nursing courses. Students will examine common problems that cause poor transitions among care settings as well as discuss improvements that can be made to prevent poor outcomes for older adults during the transitioning process.
