Home and Community Based Care Symposium Header 2016

Home and Community Based Care:
A Symposium for Health Professionals and Community Members


This symposium is designed for health professionals and community members to learn more about the forces shaping health care delivery and to discover how home and community based care models are changing. The symposium and discussion will provoke new perspectives on, and frameworks for, home- and community-based care across the life span. Attendees will learn with and from leaders in health care policy, education, practice, and delivery systems, along with health care practitioners and community members. 


Participants will be able to:

  1. Identify forces shifting delivery of health care services along the continuum from acute and long-term care to the home and community
  2. Distinguish the principles of transitional and coordinated care and how they support patients throughout the continuum of care 
  3. Describe developments within home-based care such as the complexity of patient care needs, the variety of disorders managed in a home setting, the growth of informational technology, and the impact of these issues on patient care management and outcomes
