Chronic Illness in AmericaStreaming Video - 2005
Long-term healthcare is in crisis in America. This Fred Friendly Seminar moderated by Dateline NBC correspondent John Hockenberry takes a hard look at the inadequacies of a medical system dangerously skewed away from the treatment of chronic health conditions. Role-playing three interrelated scenarios, Charles Cutler, of the American Association of Health Plans; Richard Bringewatt, of the National Chronic Care Consortium; Suzanne Mintz, of the National Family Caregivers Association; Arthur Caplan, of the Center for Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania; and other panelists make it clear that the emphasis must be decisively shifted from intervention to prevention and maintenance-and that it is high time to rethink the way healthcare is financed, managed, and provided.
