This toolkit of resources was developed by the Home Health Quality Improvement National Campaign for use by home health care providers and other healthcare audiences seeking best practices in the management of disease with an eye toward reducing unnecessary readmissions. A main introductory package is included for health systems leadership as well as for specific disciplines, including nursing and therapy. Additional resources include an overview webinar, podcast and presentation slides; case studies and success stories; and patient awareness, education and empowerment materials. A "COPD Zone Tool" is included in both English and Spanish for patients, caregivers and healthcare providers to communicate patient status consistently using green, yellow and red status descriptions.
