ARCH Respite Research Summit

June 19, 2020 | Monona Terrace | Madison, WI

 

Program Agenda

Registration and Hotel Information

 

Overview

In 2015, the ARCH National Respite Network and Resource Center released recommendations for conducting focused research on respite care in its final report, Research Agenda for Respite Care: Deliberations of an Expert Panel of Researchers, Advocates and Funders.  Since then, ARCH has brought together researchers and funders in a Respite Research Consortium to help implement the Panel's research recommendations.

In conjunction with the International Short Break Conference, ARCH will convene a Respite Research Summit for researchers in the ARCH Research Consortium, members of the Expert Panel on Respite Research, international and U.S. researchers, advocates and others who are interested in helping to build an evidence-base for respite. The Summit will explore the current state of respite research and the status of implementing the Expert Panel's recommendations to advance a respite research agenda. The Summit will also provide a forum for continued discussion on the future of respite research.

The Respite Research Summit will be held on June 19, 2020, in Madison, WI. To ensure meaningful engagement of participants, advanced registration is required, and registration will be limited.  Check back often for more information.

ARCH wishes to thank The John A. Hartford Foundation and the Wareheim Foundation for their generous support. 

This project was supported, in part by grant number 90LT0002, from the U.S. Administration for Community Living, Department of Health and Human Services, Washington, D.C. 20201.
