Caregivers’ Forum: Issues, Resources, and Network – Part One

Pediatric Emergency Nurse, Children's Hospital of Colorado, Adjunct Nurse Educator, Denver College of Nursing
Medical/Surgical Oncology Unit Educator, Sky Ridge Medical Center
This inaugural two-part session is designed to be a discussion group where issues are raised and resources are shared. In Part One, a moderator-led, audience-interactive, Panel Discussion will address crucial issues that challenge the effectiveness of healthcare providers in the field on a practical day-to-day basis. The purpose of the session, and its two parts, is to identify and share those resources that will improve the everyday realities of hands-on healthcare delivery within the current context.
In Part Two, each of the Panellists will be available at a separate table, enabling the attendees to select a Panellist to join for a more in-depth, lengthy discussion about the issue raised by that specific Panellist. Each table group will be invited to share the highlights of their discussion with the overall group, and attendees will be invited to suggest resources of benefits for that particular group.
All session attendees will be invited to join an informal, voluntary ‘Caregivers’ Forum Network’, that the group will self-manage. It is anticipated that, if there is sufficient interest, this Network will meet at the Symposium in 2019 to continue its session, discussions, and resource sharing. Attendance in Part One is a preferred for attendance in Part Two, but not required.
