Medical respite care: Positioning your program for success

Tuesday, May 31, 2016: 8:30 AM-4:30 PM
Grand Ballroom II (Hilton Portland)
As the preeminent national voice on medical respite care, the Respite Care Providers’ Network (RCPN) Steering Committee has organized a full-day institute to examine current and emerging issues in the field of medical respite. The institute will be facilitated by a diverse set of speakers representing different perspectives and expertise. Relationship development with funders, effective models of care coordination and care transition, and response to addiction and overdose are a few of the topics that will be highlighted. Additionally, there will be an in-depth discussion on how we as a community understand and promote medical respite care. Through panel presentations and interactive discussions, participants in this year’s institute will have the opportunity to engage in information sharing and networking with providers from across the country.
