Symposium Background

A collaborative effort between the University of Maryland School of Nursing and Maxim Healthcare Services, this symposium is designed to inform health care system stakeholders on emerging forces and developments within home and community based care. Each session engages the learner and activates new perspectives on health care and delivery of services. Attendees also learn with and from leaders in health care policy, education, practice, and delivery systems, along with health care practitioners and community members.

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.


As a result of participating in this program, learners will be able to:

  1. Discuss current and emerging developments in home and community based care.
  2. Describe current national and workforce preparedness for reducing re-admission.
  3. Collaborate in developing strategies to improve health outcomes of individuals and communities.
