The 2023 Sarah Taub Memorial NCI Webinar was presented on September 6th, 2023 from 3-4pm Eastern Time.
National Core Indicators (NCI) is the most comprehensive and representative source of data on the characteristics and outcomes of people with disabilities and older adults who use long-term services and supports (LTSS). In 2021-2022, NCI surveyed over 27,000 older adults and people with disabilities using long-term services and supports, as well as 27,502 family members and guardians of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities receiving state-funded services. This webinar showcased the key findings about community inclusion and participation, employment, healthcare, rights and respect, and person-centered planning across the populations who participate in NCI. Discussion explored trends in these outcomes across service users, including examining outcomes related to the HCBS settings rule, which outcomes are promising and in need of improvement, as well as outcomes that differ across populations. The findings shared in this webinar helped improve understanding of where there are gaps in outcomes for service users and can be used to inform LTSS policy and practice.
