Patient Safety Tool: Working With Family Caregivers Toolkit


Next Step in Care: Family Caregivers and Health Care Professionals Working Together, a campaign of United Hospital fund, offers a free toolkit to help healthcare providers engage and partner with patients' family caregivers to ensure safe transitions of care.

The "Toolkit for Working With Family Caregivers" is adapted from the change package developed for the Transitions in Care-Quality Improvement Collaborative, an initiative of Next Step in Care that ran from March 2010 to June 2012. The toolkit includes resources related to medication, discharge planning and communication.
