Young and Associate Professor Janice Bell both led podium sessions at the Seventh Annual International Carers Conference in Adelaide, South Australia Oct. 4-6. Janice presented “Faith-based Care Navigation for Carers of Persons with Advanced Illness,” which focused on her work with the Alameda County Care Alliance supporting a church-based care navigator program for congregants and their caregivers. She also presented, “Carers’ Perspective on Novel Personal Health Network Technology for Early Palliative Cancer Care,” which featured research at UC Davis studying the effectiveness of nurse coaching combined with the use of a social network application that links cancer patients to health providers through mobile technology. Heather presented “The Home Alone Alliance: Translating Research into Practice through Partnerships” with Susan Reinhard of AARP. The two shared their collaboration that resulted in a series of videos for family caregivers. The conference sought to re-imagine caring into the future, provide a catalyst for innovation and collaboration and share improvements in the way caregivers are supported. The conference included stakeholders across a broad range of community and business sectors: policy makers, community leaders, business leaders, researchers, grassroots advocates, practitioners, consumers and carers.
