Upcoming Webinar: Transitional Care Model for Persons with Serious Mental Illness

On March 27, 2013, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Interdisciplinary Nursing Quality Research Initiative (INQRI) investigators Nancy Hanrahan, RN, PhD, and Phyllis Solomon, PhD, will present a webinar on their research translating a transitional care nursing intervention for people with serious mental illness for patients in public managed care.

The researchers’ Transitional Care Model for Persons with Serious Mental Illness (TCM-SMI) was designed to help psychiatric patients transition from hospitalization back into the community by providing 90 days of intensive hospital-to-home services. The nursing intervention proposed to reduce readmissions and depletion of scare public resources by these patients with complex needs.

The webinar will take place from 12-1 p.m. EST. It is part of a series featuring all of INQRI’s grantee teams focused on translating research into practice.
