Webinar Next Week: Translation of a Transitional Care Nursing Intervention for People with Serious Mental Illness

The transition from a psychiatric hospitalization back into the community is a vulnerable period for individuals with serious mental illness. Cycling in and out of psychiatric hospitals and emergency services is harmful to this population and depletes scarce public resources. The Transitional Care Model for Persons with Serious Mental Illness (TCM-SMI) proposes to break this cycle by providing 90 days of intensive hospital-to-home services. An INQRI project led by Nancy Hanrahan and Phyllis Solomon was designed to translate the TCM intervention to meet the complex needs of SMI clients in public managed care.

Join us on Wednesday, March 27 from 12n-1pmET as Drs. Hanrahan and Solomon present the findings from this important study.
