Description

By working in a team of skilled professionals, interdisciplinary care teams (ICT) provide comprehensive assessment and management of care for older adults. Effective ICTs use a person-centered approach that prioritizes the individual’s needs. This webinar will explain key members within ICTs and identify common challenges and best practices for ICTs working with older adults. Presenters will also address the importance of clinical, psychosocial, long-term care, behavioral and community-based support for older adults, particularly Medicare-Medicaid beneficiaries.

By the end of this webinar, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify different members of the ICT and how the team’s approach to care may change over time based on the social and health needs of the older adult.
  2. Describe effective approaches to create high performing teams including clarifying roles of team members and establishing methods of communication and information sharing with the individual, their family and core team members.
  3. Demonstrate basic knowledge of strategies to integrate long-term services and supports into care planning and overall team coordination. 
  4. Demonstrate an understanding of how the ICT interacts with the consumer and if appropriate, their caregiver.
