Product Description


This webinar will describe several systems change initiatives identified by patients and their families, and directed by peer mentors, to promote successful community transition after inpatient rehabilitation for traumatic spinal cord injury. These changes include intensified peer mentorship, peer-directed patient education programs, and a patient engagement portal. The initiatives were undertaken to improve patient and family engagement in the discharge planning process and to instill greater self-efficacy in their ability to effectively manage their own care needs post discharge. Results of these systems changes have been dramatic in improving engagement and self-efficacy and, subsequently, reducing hospital readmissions post discharge. Moreover, these changes have signaled a “sea change” in the organization’s culture of patient-centered care and rehabilitation.

Webinar participants should be able to:

  1. Identify strategies for gathering input from persons served to drive systems change
  2. Understand the importance of self-efficacy as a conceptual model for effective self-management of critical care conditions
  3. Note the essential features of an effective peer mentoring program
  4. Understand the importance of transformative learning and instructional design features to support it
  5. Identify important engagement features of a patient support portal
