Elective Experiences

Transitions of Care

Transitions of care is an elective learning experience designed to give the resident understanding of all phases of patient care before, during and after a patient is admitted to the hospital. This experience will build experience on the role of a pharmacist during multiple transition periods, including hospital admission, hospital discharge, and post-discharge care. Post discharge responsibilities involve assisting patients in getting their medications and/or supplies at home, coordinating with home health care, and coordinating with extended care facilities (ECF) to ensure a smooth transition for patients between these locations.
