IHI WEBINAR
Now What? A Policy Q & A with Don Berwick and the IHI Leadership Alliance

10:30 AM (Pacific) | Hosted by Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI)
Registration Fee: None
REGISTER

IHI Senior Fellow and President Emeritus Don Berwick, MD, recently led a policy sense-making session for members of the IHI Leadership Alliance at their spring meeting in Washington, DC, which coincided with the House of Representatives' vote on the American Health Care Act (AHCA).

The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) wants to make sure that all health care leaders have access to Don's nuanced understanding of where policy has been with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) and where it might go next with the AHCA. That's why we're hosting Now What? A Policy Q&A with Don Berwick and the Leadership Alliance. No matter your view, IHI believes that a common understanding of these issues is critical to improving health and health care.

During this free webinar, Don will take questions from Alliance members and anyone who wants to understand the latest developments in health care policy.

Don has also created a dynamic video that breaks down the difference between the ACA and the AHCA. It will make for some great sense-making "pre-work" for the webinar and will help you understand how policy shifts can affect care.

The purpose of WEAAD is to provide an opportunity for communities around the world to promote a better understanding of abuse and neglect of older persons by raising awareness of the cultural, social, economic and demographic processes affecting elder abuse and neglect. In addition, WEAAD is in support of the United Nations International Plan of Action acknowledging the significance of elder abuse as a public health and human rights issue. WEAAD serves as a call-to-action for individuals, organizations, and communities to raise awareness about elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation.
