Overview

Over 5 million Americans are completely or mostly homebound or have significant limitations that make it extremely difficult to leave their home.  Access to appropriate care and services can be extremely difficult — many times compounding the complexities of their cases.  These patients, many times unseen by the “traditional” clinical setting, can fall through the cracks, leaving their loved ones, friends, and caregivers with the insurmountable task of caring for patients that require an interdisciplinary team of specialized care.  The award-winning documentary film, The Invisible Patients, tells the story of Jessica Macleod, a nurse practitioner, and four homebound patients she cares for in Evansville, Indiana. Together they put a human face on some of the most urgent health care issues facing our nation, from the living conditions of the elderly poor and end-of-life care to the soaring costs of hospitalization, the complexity of insurance and overprescription of opiates.  To supplement the eye-opening information from the film, we will also delve into gaps in the continuum of care, barriers to quality care in the home, best practice models, and considerations and guidance for providers working in healthcare.  Clinicians will have a better understanding of the overlapping barriers and challenges that many homebound patients face, and gain the valuable tools necessary to enhance practice, advocate for programs and services that meet needs, and connect patients/caregivers to those resources.  Together, providers can shine a light on the most vulnerable in our communities and ensure that their health and wellness does not go unseen.

Course Objectives

By the end of the session – the participant will be able to:

  1. List two examples from the film that highlighted a gap in the care continuum
  2. Name one emerging trend in home healthcare
  3. Summarize the resources available to homebound patients and their caregivers
