This study was initiated to determine the impact of post- discharge, nurse- led, home- based case management intervention on the number of emergency readmissions, level of care utilization, quality of life, and psychological functioning. Patients discharged home from a general hospital (N = 147) were randomly assigned to usual care or nurse-led, home-based, case management intervention. During the 24 weeks of follow-up, no difference between the two groups was found for readmission, care utilization, quality of life, or psychological functioning. Patients in the control group tended to move sooner to non-independent living accommodation than patients in the nurse-led, home-based, case management intervention group.
