Course Summary

Transitional Care Interventions To Prevent Readmissions for People With Heart Failure is organized by Baylor College of Medicine Office of Continuing Medical Education (OCME) and will be held during Oct 01, 2015 - Oct 31, 2018.

The target audience for this medical event is cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, primary care physicians, clinicians (such as nurses, pharmacists, and physical therapists), and case managers who work with patients with heart failure. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 0.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.

Conference Description :
A preventable readmission is defined as one related to the previous admission if there was a reasonable clinical expectation that it could have been prevented by providing quality care during the initial hospitalization, adequate discharge planning, adequate postdischarge followup, or improved coordination between inpatient and outpatient health-care teams.

However, current clinical practice in the care of adults with HF after hospitalization varies greatly. In addition, uncertainty remains about effective strategies to reduce early readmission rates for these patients. The systematic review summarized in this activity aimed to assess the efficacy, comparative effectiveness, and harms of transitional care interventions for adults with HF.

Conference Objectives are :
• Discuss the evidence regarding the efficacy, comparative effectiveness, and harms of transitional care interventions that aim to reduce readmissions and mortality for adults hospitalized with heart failure.
• Distinguish among the similarities and differences of various categories of transitional care interventions for adults with heart failure.
• Identify gaps in the current evidence base and future research needs regarding the comparative effectiveness of transitional care interventions for adults hospitalized with heart failure

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
