This toolkit from The Commonwealth Fund and Healthwise includes a series of “personas” for different types of individuals with complex health and social needs, as well as their caregivers. The personas help depict the experiences, motivations, and goals of a group of patients, as well as the barriers they face.
Personas included in this toolkit include:
- People older than 65 with functional limitations
- People with advancing illness
- People with three or more chronic conditions
- People younger than 65 living with a disability
- Caregivers of high-need patients
