Webinar – Tools for Better Transitions Between Hospital and Home

September 22, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm



Description: Transitioning between hospital and home can be stressful for family caregivers and their care recipients. In partnership with Ontario Health, this webinar provides caregivers with information, resources, and tools to support patient transitions between hospital and home. We will hear lived experiences from two caregivers, and Dr. Karen Okrainec, a Clinician-Scientist and Assistant Professor at University Health Network and the University of Toronto. Dr. Okrainec will showcase the Patient Oriented Discharge Summary (PODS) tool, designed to alleviate stress for patients and their caregivers during transitions.

Webinar participants will learn how to:

  • Understand the importance of seamless, fully coordinated transitions between hospital and home
  • Use the quality standard and patient guide to support conversations with health care providers on a written transition plan, medications, home and community care, medical equipment and devices, follow-up appointments, and possible changes to your routine at home
  • Identify tools and resources that can help support families and caregivers through the transition process

All attendees who complete the post-webinar survey can enter a draw to win an Ontario Caregiver Organization Water Bottle. This draw will be held on September 29th 2022, and is only available to residents of Ontario. Winners will be contacted via email after the draw.
