Project RED: Module 1: Preparing to Redesign Your Discharge Program
Provides a four-module training program to help hospitals implement Project RED.
Project RED Components
Enable DA to:
- Prepare patients for hospital discharge.
- Help patients safely transition from hospital to home.
- Promote patient self-health management.
- Support patients after discharge through follow-up phone call.
Perhaps the main key difference between your old process and Project RED will be having a designated DA. The 11 components are activities that guide to DA to send the patient home prepared to care for himself or herself.
