Older people leaving hospital: a statistical overview of the Transition Care Program 2009-10 and 2010-11

This document from the Australia Institute of Health and Welfare presents key statistics about transition care services provided to older people directly after discharge from hospital.

The Transition Care Program aims to improve recipients' independence and functioning, and has assisted nearly 52,000 people since it started in 2005-06, including 18,000 individuals who received just under 20,300 episodes of transition care in 2010-11.

The report includes an analysis of trends since the program's establishment, and an examination of the final outcomes of people receiving consecutive episodes of care.
