Patients transitioning from the hospital into the community are vulnerable to adverse outcomes and unplanned readmissions. This presentation will discuss how patient-reported adverse outcomes (PRAOs), from a randomized controlled trial (RCT) on improving the transition of care, can identify issues in healthcare and address the need to improve patient safety.
1. Define adverse outcomes and recognize how PRAOs are a valuable tool.
2. Describe the mixed-methods approach used to analyze and interpret PRAOs.
3. Discuss the issues in healthcare identified by PRAOs.
