The Cardiac Care Bridge program was a randomized nurse-coordinated transitional care program combining case management, disease management and home-based rehabilitation for hospitalized frail older cardiac patients. This qualitative study explored the experiences of patients’ participating in this nurse-coordinated transitional care intervention, as part of a larger process evaluation, in order to support interpretation of the neutral trial outcomes and the contribution of the intervention components from participants’ point of view.

The data of this study consists of the MAXQDA-file in which the transcripts and the coding process are included.
