New Program Strives to Improve Outcomes through Improved Discharge Planning

October 2017

Roughly 170 Genesis leaders nationwide—including center executive directors, physicians, nurses, directors of rehab, and social workers—were recently enrolled in a new three-part learning campaign aimed at optimizing discharge planning to improve patient outcomes. Designed to re-enforce the new Genesis Transitions in Care Best Practice Standards that were recently rolled out across the organization, the learning campaign helps participants gain a deeper understanding of the standards, the impact they can have on patients’ lives, and each team member’s unique role in implementing them. Entitled “Transitions in Care: Your Role in What’s Next,” the program includes highly-interactive online coursework (e.g. simulations, discussion forums, activities, and more) as well as opportunities for learners to practice what they have learned on the job, and then share challenges, successes, and insights with their peers.
