To address the needs of those who are 65 years of age and older, the MHA Keystone Center launched its second Age-Friendly Health Systems Action Community March 10. Funded by the Michigan Health Endowment Fund and offered to MHA members free of charge, the initiative will demonstrate how to meet the needs of older adults to provide high-quality care and improve health outcomes.
Participants will convene virtually for seven months to test an evidence-based structure to provide exceptional care for older adults known as the 4Ms Framework: What Matters, Medication, Mentation and Mobility.
The Action Community’s curriculum allows members the flexibility to engage at their own pace. Each webinar will be recorded and shared with participants, and members will have access to the MHA Age-Friendly Action Community webpage to post questions and view resources at their convenience. Additionally, the Action Community curriculum will build on participants’ existing practices, resulting in a shift in care rather than adding work to current efforts.
