This year’s symposium considers transitions in care within the home and community-based care setting. The opening session examines national and state policy trends, during which learners will discuss the application and effect of these policies. Next, we will delve into transitions to home care from long-term care settings. Using case scenarios, attendees collaborate with experts to apply best practices and learn more about resources available to practitioners, patients, and communities. Our ultimate aim is to shape the future of health care where individuals, communities, and populations thrive as a result of a vibrant culture of health supported by an effective health care service system.

This year’s symposium will include a Poster Session! 

We invite clinicians, faculty and students to share their projects and research on home-based care topics.
