Webinar Summary:

With the increased attention spent on reducing re-hospitalizations, researchers from across the country are coming together to study methods to re-engineer the discharge process. Leading the way is a group of researchers from Boston University School of Medicine directing Project Re-Engineering Discharge, Project RED. A key contributor to this project is Dr. Suzanne Mitchell.

Dr. Mitchell has over a decade of clinical experience caring for vulnerable populations and practices inpatient and community-based palliative care medicine. Dr. Mitchell received her medical degree from Wake Forest University School of Medicine and holds a Master’s degree in Clinical Research from UCLA.

This one-hour web seminar will present how Project RED came to be, the demonstrated results, experiences in implementation, and will discuss new frontiers in care transitions.
