    In an effort to support our members with the most updated information on COVID-19 we developed this resource page to easily access current CDC information and other resources to assist you professionally and personally.

    We will continue to update this page with more information as it becomes available and welcome your input as we navigate through this situation. As health care professionals it is our job to educate our patients and families on prevention and the what to do if someone is symptomatic.

New Toolkit - What Matters to Older Adults?

What Matters to Older Adults?

The Institute for Healthcare Improvement has released an Age-Friendly Health Systems initiative toolkit for clinicians, "What Matters to Older Adults? A Toolkit for Health Systems to Design Better Care with Older Adults."

The toolkit helps celebrate What Matters to You? day. The toolkit is intended to serve as a resource for interprofessional care teams, including physicians, nurses, physician assistants, medical assistants, social workers, chaplains, nurse navigators, community health workers, and trained volunteers.

It provides actionable steps and guidance to ensure every older adult's health outcome goals and care preferences are understood, documented, and integrated into their care by the entire healthcare team. Supported by The SCAN Foundation, the toolkit was created as part of the Age-Friendly Health Systems initiative.
