Older patients discharged from nursing homes were randomly assigned to student teams from medicine, nursing, and social work (C.A.R.E.) or to no specific aftercare. Patients seen by student teams had significantly more knowledge about community resources than did control patients, but showed no difference in rate of readmission or level of adjustment. The 24 students in the program developed significantly better attitudes toward the aged than control students. A student team approach offering services to the elderly may be one way of positively shaping attitudes of young preprofessionals in the health field.
