New Article by Penn Nursing Professor Examines Moral Obligation of Clinicians to Address the Needs of Family Caregivers of Persons with Dementia

Hodgson.jpg

More than 15 million family members and other unpaid caregivers provide care to persons living with dementia in the United States. Yet the current healthcare environment and reimbursement models emphasize obligations toward individual patients, preventing clinicians from reaching out to these caregivers to assess their needs and provide care.
