Engaging Caregivers as Partners
Thursday, April 18, 2019
1:00 – 2:00 p.m. CT
Caregivers are unpaid persons who provide support for medical tasks and activities critical to a patient who has had a recent hospital or nursing home stay. Leveraging family caregivers as part of home health patients’ healthcare teams has been proven to improve patient outcomes and quality of life. In this webinar, you’ll learn more about the changing role of caregiving in a value-based environment and relationship-centered care concepts. Legislative initiatives (e.g., CARE Act and RAISE Act) that can impact caregivers will also be discussed.
