Transitions MAC Toolkit

The Medical Advisory Council (MAC) of the Forum of ESRD Networks ( http://esrdnetworks.org/ ) publishes a series of MAC Toolkits for dialysis providers on various topics, including Vaccination, Catheter Reduction, Diabetes Care Coordination, QAPI, Medication Reconciliation, Medical Director Responsibilities, and a newly minted Toolkit on Transitions of Care.  They can be effective starting places for root cause analysis in your Quality Improvement Activities.  For instance, Chapter 8 of the new Transitions Toolkit covers hospitalization issues and how important it is to provide communication and coordination of care from dialysis facility to hospital and back, particularly when a patient goes to the ER on their own.  Find the new Toolkit at http://esrdnetworks.org/mac-toolkits-1/new-toolkit-transitions-of-care-toolkit/transitions-of-care-toolkit/at_download/file .
