The NIH-National Institute on Aging has just funded a 5 year Project (Project PI: Dr. Amy Kind) for a prospective, single-blind randomized controlled trial of the Coordinated-Transitional Care (C-TraC) program. The primary goal of this study is to determine C-TraC’s impact on 30-day rehospitalizations, caregiver stress, and the patient-centered post-hospital outcomes of delirium prevention/resolution, functional maintenance/recovery, and falls prevention in patients with dementia discharged from the hospital to the community.
The University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics has generously agreed to host this study and to provide additional matching support. This Project was funded as part of the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center P50 renewal. Read more about the project here.
