Lake Superior Quality Innovation Network presents the 2018 Readmissions Action Learning Day: "Working Together to Make Readmissions Rare." Learn together with your community peers and develop collaborative approaches to improving quality of care and quality of life by keeping patients healthy and safe at home.
Lake Superior QIN invites you to the second webinar of Learning Session 5: The demographics of long-term care populations are changing: increasingly more younger adults are in need of long-term care. This webinar will cover strategies to identify and address the mental health complexities in this younger long-term care population in order to improve their overall quality of life.
Many health care providers struggle to meet the urgent mental health care needs of their patients. Forming collaborative partnerships with other community stakeholders, including paramedics, law enforcement, and care management professionals, can help providers assist patients in accessing needed care more quickly and effectively. This webinar will highlight two different approaches – one using resources in an urban setting, the other in a small rural setting. Through better coordination, these interdisciplinary teams improve patient care, change ED utilization, and reduce inpatient readmissions.
