7. Preparing for Transition to Outpatient Care (TRT 22:30)


Transitioning from hospital to outpatient care or between providers can be a very vulnerable time for people with epilepsy, particularly after hospitalizations for EEG telemetry or medication changes. Members of the epilepsy team, when planning for transitions, should explore relevant care factors with patients and their families or other supports. This module discusses readiness for discharge, medication reconciliation, general safety and activity, and key aspects of patient/family education and coordinating community supports.
