The Commonwealth Fund/AcademyHealth Long-Term Care Colloquium


Although demand for long-term care services continues to grow, this important health care sector has been a relatively low priority for both policymakers and health services researchers. In addition, meaningful communication between these groups and collaboration on work have been limited. This Picker Program Grant will plan the first in a series of colloquia on long-term care to be sponsored by the Fund and AcademyHealth over the next five years. The meetings' goals are to focus attention on critical long-term care issues and problems, foster discussion and consensus among state and local policymakers, practitioners, and researchers on potential solutions to those issues, and identify the information gaps and research needed to solve the problems. Proceedings, slides, and commissioned papers from the meetings will be posted on the AcademyHealth and Fund Web sites.
