Webinar — Key Findings from “Help Wanted: Californians’ Views and Experiences of Serious Illness and End-of-Life Care”
About This Event
In 2019, CHCF commissioned a statewide survey to better understand the type of medical care and services Californians would prefer to receive if they had a serious illness or if they were approaching the end of life, and to explore the experiences of those actually dealing with these issues themselves or with loved ones. On Tuesday, November 5, CHCF hosted a webinar discussion of key findings from the survey report, Help Wanted: Californians’ Views and Experiences of Serious Illness and End-of-Life Care.
This event was designed for media, state and national policymakers, health plans, health systems, researchers, advocates, and anyone interested in serious illness care or end-of-life care.
A video recording of this webinar is available below.
Tresa Undem, a partner at PerryUndem Survey Research/Communication, will describe research methods and survey highlights, including a comparison with Final Chapter, CHCF’s 2012 report on end-of-life issues.
Anne Kinderman, MD, associate clinical professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, and director of the Supportive & Palliative Care Service at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center will discuss how providers, health plans, and others can work to meet the needs of people with serious illness.
