There is evidence that an emergency department (ED) visit signifies a period of vulnerability for older adults. Transition between the ED and community care can be fraught with challenges. There are essential elements for improved care transition from the ED to the community. Starting a new program requires buy-in from leaders, clinical team, and community. Improving care within an ED requires looking beyond the ED. Following implementation science will increase the success of program implementation and dissemination. There are successful alternative approaches that can be learned from when striving to improve care and transitions.
