The Preparedness Assessment for the Transition Home after Stroke (PATH-s) instrument was developed by Michelle Camicia and Barbara J. Lutz through research funded by a Rehabilitation Nurses Foundation grant. Consisting of a 25-item self-report, this instrument is a freely accessible downloadable document intended to help healthcare providers develop tailored care plans that address identified gaps and better prepare caregivers to transition patients home after stroke.
