Studies show that when patients are engaged in their healthcare, it can improve their safety and quality of care. To encourage higher engagement, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality created the Guide to Patient and Family Engagement in Hospital Quality and Safety. This tested, evidence-based resource helps hospitals collaborate as partners with their patients and their families to enhance the safety and quality of care.
The Guide to Patient and Family Engagement in Hospital Quality and Safety can be applied to hospital discharge planning since patients, and their families are heavily involved in the transition from hospital to home. Engaging patients and their families in hospital discharge planning lowers the chance of harmful events and readmissions. Therefore, it is essential to thoroughly transfer information from clinicians to patients and their families in order to make the transition safe and effective.
Strategy 4: IDEAL Discharge Planning Implementation Handbook gives an overview and analysis of the IDEAL Discharge Planning strategy. The handbook’s step-by-step guide shows hospitals how to implement this Patient hospital discharge strategy into place and fix common challenges. Access the PDF version here.
