Description: In May, 2018, 40 leaders and scholars from universities, delivery organizations, professional associations, advocacy groups, government agencies, and private insurance companies were convened to identify and prioritize recommendations to ensure an adequate workforce to support the care of people with serious illnesses in the community. Summit attendees proposed 16 overarching recommendations, spanning the workforce from home care aides through geriatricians. This webinar outlines the recommendations and places them in the context of recent research on how health care organizations are meeting serious illness care needs and federal policy initiatives.
