Resource Type: 

This guide for primary care providers was developed by Christie North, MBA, and Debra L. Scammon, PhD, at the University of Utah's David Eccles School of Business based on a project funded by the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). The guide is intended for primary care physicians, especially physicians, nurse practitioner, and physician assistants, who serve older adult patients (65+ years). The guide provides strategies and tactics to strengthen the partnership between clinicians, patients, and family caregivers. Particular emphasis is placed on improved communication techniques and workflow modifications that help clinicians and other care team members more effectively engage family caregivers.
