More about the 2022 event
Two years into the COVID-19 pandemic, care advocates around the world have experienced pressures on the health and social care systems in their nations, exposing unmet needs for millions of family caregivers worldwide. Beyond the urgent public health care needs that have resulted from and been exasperated by COVID-19, carer organizations continue to confront challenges around how families are included or excluded from care delivery models, the lack of incentives from regulators and payers to capture data on the caregiving experience, reimbursement and financing for carer support, and disparities between care experiences across nations.
As the uncertainty around the future of the global COVID-19 pandemic continues, support for carers remains critical. NAC is convening global leaders, experts, influencers, researchers, policymakers, innovators, and other stakeholders in caregiving to share their unique research, case studies, programs, interventions, and perspectives on the future of caregiving as part of this event.
