Clinicians usually see healthcare consumers for a few minutes in the clinical space, but factors affecting health extend far beyond face-to-face time with a provider and clinic staff. When consumers are receiving support from a caregiver—whether professional, family member, or friend—clinical staff have a significant opportunity to understand and impact health factors not readily visible in the clinic. In this series, you’ll learn from experts, healthcare consumers, and caregivers about types of caregivers, opportunities and challenges, consumer autonomy and decision making, and tools for appropriately working with caregivers and home health workers as part of the consumer’s full care team.
