  • Conversation#2 The Role of Education of Healthcare Providers to Support Family Caregivers: Elements of Effective Education

    Tue, Oct. 4, 2022 3:00pm — 4:30pm

    Add this to Calendar

    Family caregivers want empathy, compassion, and respect. Communication and information sharing need to be improved. Family caregivers are looking to be included as partners in care. Assessment of family caregivers' needs, system navigation, and access to resources is needed to help them sustain care and maintain their own wellbeing. Though communication and person-centered care skills are taught in under and post-graduate health workforce training, family caregivers and other stakeholders emphasize that healthcare providers need person-centered education that recognizes the family caregiver role. This webinar aims to answer the question, "How do we educate the health workforce effectively, so family caregivers receive timely and effective support?"
