Can the panelist speak to their recommendations on how to improve the recognition, professionalism (i.e. training, skill advancement and promotion) and equity for home care workers, particularly if Dr. Spetz's recommendation in transferring care to home is to be successful?
Patricia Powers
Friendly reminder: Please send your comments and questions to panelists AND attendees as only the panelists are seeing them. Thank you!
I treated several persons for workers compensation injuries who had been employed as care providers for family members or others. These individuals were often in very poor mental and/or physical condition themselves, and when their patients passed on or went into skilled nursing facilities, they became a huge expense for the state under Workers Compensation. They were not well motivated to get back to work

Thanks for holding this session! Can the panelists recommend any data/research correlating geriatric training requirements for general practice providers and an increased ability for older adults to age in place?
Laura Ford
Thank you for this great and important session. I was wondering if the panelists can discuss the concept of payment reform, perhaps even value based payments, as a way to look at team-based care, reimbursement and caregiver/professional compensation.
Sarah Rodrigues
Lay health workers/promotores/peer workers have potential to ‘support and keep people at home’… but, besides finite grants, how can we sustainably fund this workforce?
Steve McNally
Thank you for your time today, * How will reciprocal license agreements help and become a near term reality? ** Are Doctors prepared/training to lead teams? *** Sounds like the workforce is task not team and patient centric...….****I'll read the report to see what is most easily controlled by us .I am outside this industry but recognize the need.
