Transitions in Care 2.0: Family Caregivers and Systems Change | Archived

Hear selected presentations from the conference.

This full-day conference will examine in depth how to strengthen transitions in care programs by more effectively including family caregivers.

A highlight will be the first presentation of the United Hospital Fund’s Action Agenda, “Transitions in Care 2.0.” Judith Feder, PhD, a member of the newly formed Commission on Long-Term Care, the conference keynoter, will discuss policy challenges in integrating family caregivers into medical care and long-term services and supports. Leaders of major national program models—including Eric Coleman, MD, MPH, and Mary Naylor, PhD, RN—will discuss opportunities for and challenges in engaging family caregivers. A panel of family caregivers will discuss what would have made their experiences better, and participants will learn how they can begin to make change in their own institutions, drawing on experiences in New York and other states.
