In this David Strauss Clinical webinar, Amol Karmarkar, Ph.D. discusses his research on disparities in care transitions for individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Using the Virginia All-Payer Claims Database (APCD), he examined care transition patterns after acute hospitalization and disparities associated with gender, race/ethnicity, insurance status, and location of residence. In addition, he examined the association between care transitions and the risk of 30- and 90-day hospital readmission. The study findings have implications for the delivery of equitable clinical services to ensure continuity of care for individuals with TBI. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss disparities associated with care transitions in individuals with TBI.
  • Describe the 30- and 90-day hospital readmission risk across three post-acute settings.

 Includes 1 ACBIS CEU.
