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.

Notes:

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.
