Using advance and emergency care plans during transfer decisions: A grounded theory interview study with care home staff – Fawn Harrad-Hyde, Natalie Armstrong, Chris Williams, 2021
Advance care planning has been identified as one of few modifiable factors that could reduce hospital transfers from care homes.
