Planning for our patients during times of transitions (for example: hospital to home, home to rehabilitation
facility) involves collaboration with a number of healthcare professionals. Please address the following
questions:
• How does your facility promote interprofessional collaboration during times of patient transitions?
• What is the role of the nurse in patient transitions?
• What gaps can you identify in this process related to quality of care?
