Carrying the Load: Improving Clinical Outcomes by Strengthening Patient/Family Caregiver Relationships

Joan Forte, Health Care Consultant/Nurse Administrator, Stanford Health Care
Barbara Kivowitz, Advisor, Stanford Health Care

January 16, 2018, 2:00-3:00 PM ET

The patient/family caregiver relationship impacts understanding of the illness, coping, and following medical recommendations - directly influencing health outcome. These relationships are a crucial lever for clinicians.  At Stanford Health Care, using a relationship-centered framework (based on Love in the Time of Chronic Illness: How to  Fight the Sickness- Not Each Other by Barbara Kivowitz), we collaborated with patient/family partners, clinicians, and administrators to develop a curriculum to enable clinicians to support the patient/family caregiver relationship, in their daily practice, and deepen collaboration and strengthen the resilience needed to manage illness. Participants will gain a deep understanding of the impact of illness on the relationship, and approaches to use with patients and caregivers.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the successful framework utilized at Stanford Health Care and its applicability to other settings.
  • Demonstrate methods clinicians can use to support the strengths in the patient/family caregiver relationship to achieve better outcomes - in the course of daily practice.
  • Share outcome research that illustrates the positive results that are associated with greater inclusion of caregivers in treatment situations.
