Who Cares? Family Caregiving Experiences of our Healthcare Providers – 2024 E. Monument Street, Powe Room 1-500Q
Kimberly A. Skarupski, PhD, MPH, Senior Associate Dean for Faculty Development and Professor in the Department of Medicine and Professor of Epidemiology in the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University will discuss the findings from a caregiving survey that was conducted with the faculty of the Johns Hopkins Department of Medicine. The survey was conducted in October 2022 and was based upon an article from 2021 entitled “Prevalence of caregiving and high caregiving strain among late-career medical school faculty members: Workforce, policy and faculty development implications” This article resulted in numerous press releases and faculty feedback which inspired the Department of Medicine to survey their faculty.
