This session will lay the foundation for understanding, appreciating, and improving the compromised relationship that has existed between the emergency room and the skilled nursing facility. Experts from the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) and AMDA – The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine will describe the current state of affairs and how these two institutions can begin to work together in a meaningful and collaborative way as advocates for their mutual patients, based on enhanced communication, education, and the recognition of common goals.

Learning Objectives:
(1) Describe the challenges that exist in the transitions of care environment that act to compromise a purposeful relationship between the skilled nursing facility (SNF) and emergency department (ED).
(2) Realize how the ED, through the work of ACEP, is understanding how it needs to re-define itself in it's care of patients and it's relationship to PA/LTC providers,
(3) Consider how "best practices" in transitioning patients between the ED and SNF can be implemented in both locales
(4) Appreciate how the "geriatric" emergency room can augment the care of patients and positively impact Population Health programs and the Triple Aim.
