Conference Highlights 7 Transitional Care Interventions

Lattimer outlined several models at the Falls Church, Va., event, including transition coaching, advanced nurse practitioner participation, the use of a guided care nurse, Boston University's Project RED and the Society of Hospital Medicine's Project Boost
