The Role of Family Caregivers as Patient Advocates Engaging with Healthcare Teams
Family caregivers are key members of the healthcare team and play a critical role in patient care, medical decision-making, and health outcomes. Perhaps one of their most important roles is to serve as patient advocates, which is essentially speaking up on the patient’s behalf and engaging with healthcare teams to determine what care aligns with patient and family preferences, goals, and wishes. In this session, we will discuss the role of family caregivers as patient advocates in health care settings, social services, and legal settings when necessary. In addition, an essential component of advocacy is to be an effective communicator, a skillset that many family caregivers must learn in their role. In this session, we will also discuss different communication strategies for family caregivers as they engage with other members of the healthcare team on the patient’s behalf.
