Building upon EQIC’s unit-based safety focus, this presentation will address the importance of ensuring all care for older adults is age-friendly care. A health system is “age friendly” when it’s expertly designed to coordinate care as patients age, while also making sure their personal needs, values and preferences are at the heart of that care.
Participants will learn about Age-Friendly Health Systems, which aim to:
IHI faculty member Mary Tinniti, MD, will overview the “4Ms” framework — What Matters, Medication, Mentation and Mobility — and key components of age-friendly care, which are intended to make the complex care of older adults manageable. When implemented together, the 4Ms represent a broad shift by health systems to focus on the needs of older adults resulting in significant improvements and optimizing value for all.
Participants also will hear how two age-friendly health systems navigated COVID-19 challenges and successfully piloted, tested and scaled up 4Ms care in their care units, hospital and across their health network.
EQIC encourages hospital staff responsible for unit-based safety, including key liaisons; chief nursing officers; chief quality officers; geriatricians; nursing managers and staff; social workers; care unit interdisciplinary team members including hospitalists, patient safety managers, educators; and other providers who specialize in the care of older adults to attend.
