ALEwebtalk Part 42: Improving Communication and Collaboration Between Primary Care Providers and Adult Day Centers to Support Community Living

Wednesday, October 6, 2021
10:30 am12:00 pm

Timely and efficient communication among participants, primary care providers (PCPs), and caregivers is the key to effectively meeting the complex needs of older adults or people with disabilities. Adult Day Health Care and Adult Day Programs should be considered as an ideal source of patient-related information, but they have frequently been misunderstood, or ignored, by PCPs.

Recent qualitative research into the source of this disconnection has revealed both barriers to good communication and solutions that can improve care outcomes.

Join Dr. Tina Sadarangani, with New York University’s College of Nursing, to learn how to build productive communication bridges with the participant’s primary care provider to achieve greater satisfaction, better outcomes, and stronger awareness of the value of services you provide. We’ll have time for Q&A, so bring your ideas and questions!
