Twitter Chat to Discuss Intersection of COVID-19 and Age-Friendly Care

Posted on February 04, 2021

Age-Friendly Twitter ChatThe impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the healthcare industry is far-reaching. One key lesson that has surfaced is the urgent need for age-friendly healthcare. Given that older adults are at a higher risk for morbidity and mortality related to COVID-19, the MHA Keystone Center continues to serve as a resource to support communities and healthcare teams working to provide evidence-based care to this population (see related article).

To help educate and encourage conversation around expanding care practices for older adults, the MHA Keystone Center will host a Twitter Chat from noon to 1 p.m. Feb. 18 to discuss the urgent need for age-friendly healthcare. During the event, the MHA Keystone Center will moderate and lead the conversation, asking questions from @MHAKeystoneCtr. MHA-member hospitals are encouraged to share their current initiatives and success stories using the hashtag #KeystoneAgeFriendly.

The Twitter chat will facilitate discussion around how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected older adults, why improving care for this population should be a priority, steps organizations can take for improving care and more. The questions for the Feb. 18 Twitter Chat can be found on the MHA Keystone Center’s Older Adults webpage. To confirm participation, members should contact the MHA Keystone Center.
