As our population ages and the incidence of chronic illnesses rises, patients' family members increasingly will be seen as the linchpins to clinical outcomes. In this webinar, psychologist and family caregiving expert, Barry J. Jacobs, Psy.D. will review the extensive literature on the medical and psychological consequences for family caregivers, review research on the impact of family presence on medical visits, and explore emerging ideas for deputizing family members as integrated healthcare team members. The use of EHR portals for team-family communication, means of handling intrafamily conflicts around healthcare decisions, and issues of patient autonomy and confidentiality will be directly addressed.

Jacobs, Psy.D. is a clinical psychologist, family therapist and the author of the book, The Emotional Survival Guide for Caregivers - Looking After Yourself and Your Family While Helping an Aging Parent (Guilford, 2006).  As a clinician, he specializes in helping families cope with series and chronic illness.   As an educator, he works as the Director of Behavioral Sciences for the Crozer-Keystone Family Medicine Residency Program in Springfield, PA and has had adjunct faculty positions with the Temple University School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing and the Department of Psychology of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.  He is the national spokesperson on family caregiving for the American Heart Association and a member of the AARP Caregivers Advisory Panel.
