Webinar: Identifying and Supporting Dementia Caregivers in Healthcare Settings

September 12, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EST

The Administration for Community Living/American Society on Aging will host a webinar on Identifying and Supporting Dementia Caregivers in Healthcare Settings, and define the challenges and benefits of including family caregivers as members of the healthcare team.

Family caregivers are essential for persons living with dementia, but they can often go unnoticed. To provide care and improve outcomes for persons living with dementia, efforts are underway in several healthcare settings to better engage family caregivers in the development of care plans and the delivery of care.

Through this webinar, participants will be able to:

Describe the benefits of improving family caregivers’ representation in the Electronic Health Record (EHR) of persons living with dementia

Discuss multiple ways in which healthcare systems could better identify family caregivers in EHRs and other forms of Health IT

Access tools care managers can use to identify, assess and support family caregivers of people with dementia within healthcare systems

Identify policies that can be leveraged to improve caregiver identification

Complimentary CEU’s are available. Click here to register.
