An august panel of aging care experts will meet Monday in Washington to film a discussion about creative global and international models of eldercare. The gathering is sponsored by PBS NewsHour and funded by the SCAN Foundation. Everything from managed care programs in Minnesota and California to a voucher program in Finland and caregiver support systems in Taiwan will be examined. NewsHour's Hari Sreenivasan will moderate the session, which will include an array of well-known U.S. aging thought leaders.
There are arguably many areas of long-term care that need more research, but one that is most intriguing is the need for better leadership practices for administrators. Luckily, the Harvey Picker Center of Innovation & Applied Research is looking for a way to help.
