The transition of older adults from the skilled nursing facility (SNF) setting back to the community has been largely understudied or not explored in the transitions of care arena. We will use this session to explore and expand upon optimizing best practices for patient centered, trans-disciplinary, seamlessly coordinated care among provider and community-based teams working to transition their often medically complex and physiological frail patients, from the SNF, back to "home".
