A McMaster professor and his research team have been awarded $50,000 for a project about the issues for frail elderly patients being discharged from hospital emergency rooms.

The project led by Andrew Costa, assistant professor of the Department of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, will help improve the safety for complex frail elderly patients transitioning from the hospital to their own home, and recommend strategies and tools for the patient, their family caregivers, and health care team to work together.

The funding will come from the Canadian Patient Safety Institute, Accreditation Canada, HealthCareCAN and the Canadian Home Care Association.
