Webinar: The Next Steps to Improving Home Health Care for Children with Medical Complexity
Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2019
10:30 a.m. (PT)
More children are surviving serious chronic conditions than ever before, which means home health care is essential to supporting their care. Children may need home health care to help with medication administration, respiratory care, or activities of daily living. Recent shortages in home health care providers have led to additional family burden. Addressing workforce issues, from competitive wages and better training, to telemedicine, and alignment with adult-focused care initiatives can help alleviate undue family hardship.
Join us for a discussion of potential solutions from the perspectives of parent advocates, home health care providers, pediatricians, and state officials. We suggest attendees read the article, Home Health Care for Children with Medical Complexity: Workforce Gaps, Policy, And Future Directions prior to the event. Audience Q&A is highly encouraged.
