United Hospital Fund. Next Step in Care. Family Caregivers & Health Care Professionals Working Together. [Web site]. http://www.nextstepincare.org/ Updated 2013. Accessed July 30, 2014. This website provides easy-to-use guides to help family caregivers and health care providers work closely together to plan safe and smooth transitions for chronically or seriusly ill patients. Transitions are moves between care settings, for example, from hospital to home or rehab facility, or the start or end of home care agency services. Because transitions are often rushed, miscommunication and errors can occur.
