Research lines

Transitions of care and readmissions.

This line includes projects of translational research and organizational innovation closely linked to geriatric care, which aim to promote safe care transitions, as well as the adherence to different treatments and the recovery of an active life at home, with the ultimate goal of reducing complications and the rate of hospital readmissions.


Ongoing projects: TransitionA (complex person-centered non-pharmacological intervention, aimed to empower the persons before the transition and to prepare them for return home), Comprehensive Geriatric Hospital at Home (both with own funding).
