Resources for Advancing In-Person Care Partner Programs
Below, MAPS will list resources for organizations and communities as access and visitor restrictions to campuses and congregate care settings change.
To further develop a comprehensive toolkit of resources and support, MAPS is IN SEARCH OF:
- Organizations and congregate care settings taking innovative strides to allow In-Person Care Partners to be part of healthcare admissions, visits, and care encounters
- Patients, residents, and family members as well as clinicians, organizations, and care settings who can share stories of how In-Person Care Partners made care safer
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org as you change or plan to change policies to allow for an In-Person Care Partner. We will feature your organization and stories on our social channels and website. We’d love to share with the community to spread these efforts!
