This series was developed to increase the age-sensitive health care knowledge and skills of primary care professionals. Each course promote team-based, coordinated, patient-centered, evidence-based care that is responsive to the particular needs of older adults. The series was created through funding provided by the US Health Resources and Services Administration’s Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Program (GWEP).
HIGN partnered with the Montefiore Health System and R.A.I.N., a community services organization in the Bronx, to create this series to improve the quality of healthcare for older adults by:
- Changing clinical training environments into integrated geriatrics and primary care delivery systems.
- Training providers who can assess and address the needs of older adults and their families or caregivers at the individual, community, and population levels.
- Delivering community-based programs that will provide patients, families, and caregivers with the knowledge and skills to improve health outcomes and the quality of care for older adults.
