Assessing the quality of preparation for posthospital care from the patient’s perspective: the care transitions measure

Coleman EA, Mahoney E, Parry C. Assessing the quality of preparation for posthospital care from the patient’s perspective: the care transitions measure. Med Care. 2005 Mar;43(3):246-55. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15725981. Accessed August 13, 2014. BACKGROUND: Evidence that both quality and patient safety are jeopardized for patients undergoing transitions across care settings continues to expand. Performance measurement is one potential strategy towards improving the quality of transitional care. A valid and reliable self-report measure of the quality of care transitions is needed that is both consistent with the concept of patient-centeredness and useful for the purpose of performance measurement and quality improvement.
