From The Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality (AHRQ):
The guide—Taking Care of Myself: A Guide for When I Leave the Hospital—is now available in Spanish. Cómo Cuidarme: Guía Para Cuando Salga del Hospital can help hospitals reduce their readmission rates by better preparing patients for self-care and follow-up appointments before they leave the hospital.
The guide is adapted from Project RED (Re-Engineered Discharge), which was funded by AHRQ and developed by Brian Jack, M.D., and colleagues at Boston University Medical Center. Learn more about RED and its health-literacy-informed approach at: http://www.ahrq.gov/qual/pips/jack.htm.
