10 practices for supporting family caregivers

Tuesday, November 9, 2021 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT


Half of family caregivers are doing complex medical and nursing tasks at home with very little guidance, potentially putting patients at risk of serious complications. In addition to patient safety implications, this can also lead to costly hospital readmissions for hospitals.

Join AARP and innovative hospital leaders for a discussion on how to better support family caregivers, and why creating a culture of patient and family-centered care is good for everyone, including the hospital bottomline.

In this webinar, industry leaders will offer promising practices and examples to help you:

  • Better recognize and support family caregivers
  • Prevent discharge delays and costly readmissions
  • Build a culture of patient and family-centered care in crisis times and beyond
