The 4Ms of Age- and Dementia-Friendly Care ECHO Series
December 13, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
SETTING UP THE CARE NETWORK
It takes a team to support families living with dementia, and Marie Boltz, PhD, has been working and conducting research with families living with the disease for 30+ years. She will share her expertise about what families need to ensure continuity of care. Janice Whitaker, RN, will share her expertise on how to build a network of care by harnessing local agencies and dementia support organizations.
The 4Ms of Age- and Dementia-Friendly Care ECHO sessions seek to empower providers to improve health outcomes for older adults in a rural healthcare setting facing challenges related to age and dementia. Care for older adults can become more complex over time and they risk suffering harm while in the health system.
Providing a reliable system to train providers in caring for older adults and those living with dementia has important implications for individuals and is a critical healthcare need. The 4Ms of Age- and Dementia-Friendly Care ECHO Series provides an innovative and evidence-based approach to increasing high-quality care for older adult patients by bringing together specialists and non-specialists using a web-based platform to improve care for older adults in the communities where they live and work.
