Care transitions for individuals with disabling conditions are often ineffective and inefficient, resulting in poor outcomes and financial burden to the care delivery system. Rehabilitation nurses can promote successful living in the community through facilitating safe and effective care transitions. This course provides an overview of care transitions, which includes case management, discharge planning, and community reentry. Community, personal, and professional resources are provided, and the nurse's role in assessing resource needs is discussed.
