**FREE** Family Presence in Hospitals and Long-Term Care: Learnings from the COVID-19 Experience
Tuesday, April 18 2023, 1:00 PM ET
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many health care settings, including hospitals and long term care communities, limited or restricted visitors to control the spread of the virus. These new policies or guidelines greatly impacted family members and care partners who are closely involved in the care of patients or residents. They could not be with their loved ones.
To better understand how these policies affected patients, residents, and their families as well as clinicians and staff, IPFCC conducted two PCORI-funded projects – one focused on the hospital setting, the other on long-term care. Both projects structured ways to learn directly from patients, residents, and families about their real-life experiences during the pandemic. We elicited themes and topics about family presence to help guide health care and research in the future. Several themes and topics were common across the two projects and, thus, are especially important.
Join us to hear about the two projects and the common themes, and to discuss ways that they can be used to help shape the future.
