Dakota Geriatrics presents educational videos addressing the age-friendly framework from recorded healthcare professional learning opportunities.
Age-Friendly Health Systems adopts the concept of applying a set of four evidence-based frameworks of high-quality care, known as the “4Ms,” to all older adults in the healthcare system. Age-Friendly Health Systems is an initiative of the John A. Hartford Foundation and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement in partnership with the American Hospital Association and the Catholic Health Association of the United States.
Know and align care with each older adult's specific health outcome goals and care preferences including, but not limited to, end-of-life care and across settings of care.
If medication is necessary, use Age-Friendly medication that does not interfere with What Matters to the older adult, Mobility or Mentation across setting of care.
Prevent, identify, treat, and manage dementia, depression, and delirium across setting of care.
Ensure that older adults move safely every day in order to maintain function and do What Matters.
