Unmet Needs in Self-Direction Webinar

April 18, 2019

We are holding a member-only webinar, Unmet Needs in Self-Directed HCBS Programs, on Thursday, April 18th from 3-4 PM (EST). This webinar is part of a webinar series on the Journal of Gerontological Social Work's Special Journal Issue on Self-Direction.

Kevin J. Mahoney, Founding Director of the National Resource Center for Participant-Directed Services (NRCPDS), will discuss his article which draws from 76 ethnographic case studies of Cash & Counseling participants to give us an understanding of what those unmet needs are, who sees them, and what participants and their family caregivers see as possible remedies. Certain areas of unmet need stand out including health-related problems, environmental issues, and the caregivers’ need for relied. The presentation will conclude with implications for care integration and the training of support brokers as warnings about reducing budgets. Time for Q&A will be included.

You can access the article, Unmet Needs in Self-Directed HCBS Programs, online at no cost through June.
