Long-Term Services and Supports Webinar Mentions IA2 Issue Brief on Empathy and End-of-Life Care

March 27, 2013

 IA2’s issue brief on “Moving Beyond Paradigm Paralysis:  American Indian End-of-Life Care” was discussed during a March 27 webinar in a series on Long-Term Services and Supports sponsored by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Administration on Aging and Indian Health Service. The issue brief was prepared for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Healthy Aging Program.

The goal of the webinars is to share knowledge and promising practices in the field and build an ongoing dialogue among tribal, IHS, and Urban Indian health programs engaged in delivery of long-term services and supports for American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) people. The audience includes Title VI grantees, IHS, tribal, urban Indian health programs, community health representatives, and tribal program staff engaged in the delivery of long-term services and supports.

The March 27 webinar was titled “Oneida Nation Elder Services: Cultural Adaptations to a Chronic Disease Self-Management Program.” It is online at http://www.kauffmaninc.com/ltss/video/webinar_3-27-2013.html.
