A Stroke Transition Of Care Intervention With Stroke Nurse Navigator And Early Stroke Clinic Follow-up Reduces Readmissions For Stroke At 12 Months
International Stroke Conference
Introduction: Stroke is a leading cause of disability in the United States, and one in four occur in people who have already had a stroke. Preventable hospital readmissions contribute to the high medical costs of stroke. Transition of care programs have been successful in reducing hospital readmissions in other diseases, but the data on such programs for stroke is mixed. A transition of care program was implemented at a large urban stroke center, utilizing interventions shown to be effective in the literature, with the goal of reducing recurrent strokes and hospital readmissions.
