Care transitions are times when hospitalized older adults are vulnerable to poor clinical outcomes such as medication errors, readmission, and even death. Well-executed care transitions incorporate effective communication and shared decision making between patients, care partners, and providers along with accurate medication reconciliation, planned follow-up, and education on reportable signs and symptoms of clinical changes.

In this presentation, we will discuss COVID 19’s impact on the delivery of effective transitional care and troubleshoot potential solutions to address these care barriers.
