Provides a four-module training program to help hospitals implement Project RED.

Keys to the Project RED Intervention

  • DA
    • Related multidisciplinary activities
  • Care plan for patient after discharge
  • Post-discharge followup with patient


There are three essential elements to the Project RED intervention:

  • First, the Discharge Advocate's role and the role of others on the health care team, including multidisciplinary discharge rounds.
  • Second, the Patient Care Plan that is provided to the patient and family at discharge to assist with self-care activities at home.
  • Third, the followup with the patient and PCP after the patient leaves the hospital.
