Health Care Workforce Campaign Kicks Off to Mark Report’s 10th Anniversary

The Eldercare Workforce Alliance (EWA) is launching a yearlong campaign to press for solutions based on a review of how the health care workforce has progressed in serving older adults in the past decade, since the release of the Retooling for an Aging America report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. The EWA campaign, #TogetherWeCare, will share models for current and future workforce needs in areas such as dementia care, family caregiving, cultural competency, and more. Join The John A. Hartford Foundation in sharing content and advancing a well-trained workforce to care for us as we age, and look out for the #TogetherWeCare Twitter chat coming May 9th and join the conversation.

Patient Priorities Care Website Launches with Resources for New Approach to Eldercare

Patient Priorities Care, a JAHF-supported approach to patient-centered care for older adults, launched its website last month.

The site provides patients, clinicians, and health systems with information explaining how to better coordinate patient priorities among multiple clinicians focused on numerous health conditions.
