BackgroundInterior Health is working to provide appropriate and timely community care for elders who are transitioning from emergency departments. The Quick Response Team works through a process to support frail elderly patients connect with appropriate community services in a timely manner. A Rapid Process Improvement Workshop (RPIW) was held in early June to streamline the process provided by the quick response team. Patient input was requested for this workshop but unfortunately unavailable. Interior Health is hoping to have patient partner feedback on a couple of communication outcomes of the RPIW that are intended to provide patients with the information they need regarding transition from ED to Community services.
