The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) will host a workshop entitled Optimizing Care Systems for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities on December 8, 10, and 14. To register, visit the NASEM website.

A brief description of the workshop is below:

“A planning committee will host a workshop exploring the challenges and opportunities for creating an optimal care system for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). It will explore questions related to three areas of focus: models of care that deliver holistic, tailored, and coordinated care; the development of a competent workforce; effective financing and payment approaches. The workshop will focus not only on the health care system, but also on how it might coordinate with peers in other service domains.”
