The Safe Transitions Toolkit, developed by AHA’s Health Research & Educational Trust for the federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, provides practical and evidence-based tools to help clinical staff work more effectively with patients for new and follow-up appointments. Resources for patients and caregivers provide added insight about health conditions and how to work with their medical team.
