interventions to promote patient safety and quality care must account for the fact that patients will sometimes choose to act in ways that are inconsistent with the relevant evidence, and the clinician’s best efforts may not result in desired outcomes ("Patient Safety and Quality in Home Health Care," Patient Safety and Quality: An Evidence-Based Handbook for Nurses)

Training sessions on team structure may definitely help with interventions needed to be implemented by healthcare teams so that teams can have and react through awareness of individual volition of at-home-care patients may deviate from strict protocols that would be implemented in hospitals, thus allowing teams to modify or remedially correct detrimental oversights in care through appropriate team structures.
