Trualta, the only skills-based learning management platform for the family caregiver, is partnering with the University of Florida to demonstrate how healthcare system outcomes can be improved by empowering informal family caregivers with the skills and confidence they need to ensure the best possible care for their loved ones.
Participants in the UF-Trualta study are being identified through the Perioperative Cognitive and Anesthesia Network program or PeCAN. This is a clinical service at UF Health Shands Hospital that works to improve brain health for presurgical patients at risk of cognitive problems.
“As clinicians, we want to be able to offer resources to support family caregivers and help them feel more empowered, but often lack the resources to do so,” said Dr. Catherine Price, Director of PeCAN. “In partnership with Trualta, we intend to demonstrate how a relatively simple learning platform – simple both in terms of its user experience and program delivery – can give clinicians the means to bridge this gap and set up family caregivers for success.”Learn more about Trualta and University of Florida Study Evaluates Impact of Family Caregiver Education.
