<p>U.S. seniors are sicker than their counterparts in 10 other high-income countries and face greater financial barriers to health care, according to the last Commonwealth Fund International Health Policy Survey. Tune in to our upcoming webinar to learn more about the survey findings, where we explore access to care and affordability, patient engagement and prevention, and the need for social services among adults 65 and older, including those with the highest health care needs. You’ll hear from the Commonwealth Fund researchers, as well as experts from the U.K., Canada, and Sweden. </p><p>The survey included older adults in 11 countries: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States, and results were published by <em>Health Affairs</em> in November.</p>
