Age-Friendly Nursing Home ECHO

Each of our Age-Friendly ECHO sessions will be devoted to clinical case presentations, by a nursing home team member, followed by a 15-minute informational presentation delivered by the ECHO Hub Team. We will focus on addressing geriatric health concerns by conducting regular sessions to discuss specialized topics relevant to nursing homes.

Age-Friendly Health Systems

To officially be recognized as an Age-Friendly Health System, institutions must demonstrate their ability to reliably deliver care to all older adults in their system using a set of four evidence-based elements of high-quality care, known as the "4Ms." The 4Ms include: What Matters, Medication, Mentation and Mobility. When implemented together, the 4Ms represent a broad shift by health systems to focus on the needs of older adults.
