Summary of "A Congregation Transition of Care Program Using Faith Community Nurses and Volunteer Faith-Based Nurses."

Transition of Care Models can reduce the 30-day hospital readmission rate up to 67% by offering coordination and continuity of care. The purpose of this project was to evaluate a Congregation Transition of Care (CTOC) program in faith-based communities with the use of a faith community nurse and volunteer faith-based registered nurses. Descriptive statistics were used to describe findings, revealing a CTOC program can be effective in reducing 30-day readmissions in the faith community.
