Medical Respite Care: Engaging your Community

Tuesday, May 15, 2018: 8:30 AM-4:00 PM
Greenway D-G (Hyatt Regency Minneapolis)
Creative community collaboration is an essential element of medical respite care. Each medical respite program and the services they provide are uniquely designed to meet the needs of the community and to maximize community resources. In short, community is at the heart of every medical respite program. The Respite Care Providers’ Network (RCPN) has organized a full-day training for both clinicians and administrators interested in medical respite care. Funders’ perspective on medical respite, day to day program management, and relationship development are a few of the topics that will be highlighted. Additionally, there will be in-depth discussions on how harm reduction fits into medical respite care and how programs and staff can thrive in a challenging political environment. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in information sharing and networking with providers from across the country.
