On January 11, 2012, The Commonwealth Fund held a webinar to discuss the findings of the Commonwealth Fund’s latest International Health Policy Survey of Sicker Adults in Eleven Countries. Published in November, the survey, conducted in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the U.S., compared the experiences of sicker adults on financial barriers to care, access to care, care coordination, preventive care, and support for self-management.
A free 90-minute webinar sponsored by The Commonwealth Fund examined the key findings of the survey and international respondents from England, Switzerland, and the Netherlands will comment on survey findings from their perspectives. Robin Osborn, vice president and director of the International Program in Health Policy and Innovation, moderated.
