How To Provide Human-Centered Care To Older Adults?

How To Provide Human-Centered Care To Older Adults?

September 5, 2017, 6pm to 8pm
Ed Roberts Campus
At Ashby Bart 3075 Adeline Street, Berkeley


As People live longer, the chances of having multiple chronic conditions, disabilities and different degrees of memory impairment increase, making community based, human-centered, integrated/coordinated care models more needed than ever.

This panel discussion will explore:

  • Models of integrated/coordinated care that address a broad range of care needs
  • Why PACE, one of the best-known integrated care models, is successful but has not been adopted at a larger scale
  • Integrated care components that could be replicated and potentially connected in different ways to reach a larger part of the population
  • Missing links in existing care models

We will discuss these questions in the context of medical care, healthcare delivery, community-based services and funding.
Medical Care Perspective: Dr. Ken Covinsky, Professor of Medicine, UCSF
Healthcare/Funding Perspective: Robert Edmondson, Consultant, former CEO of OnLok, board member of John Muir and Eskaton.
Community Based Models: Andrew Scharlach, Eugene and Rose Kleiner Professor of Aging and Director of the Center of the Advanced Study of Aging Services at UC Berkeley
