Age in Action Fall 2019 Issue

Oct 7, 2019

The Fall 2019 issue of our quarterly, Age in Action, is now available.  It begins with a case study on care transitions from hospital to home, employing the Care Transitions Interventions model developed by Eric Coleman and colleagues. This model has proven effective in improving transitions for patients and their families and in reducing readmissions.  There are also editorials on Dementia-Friendly Resources and on No Wrong Door, a system that links providers to streamline a person's access to long-term services and supports. You can read pieces on such diverse topics as a Road Scholars hiking program, downsizing one's home, brief summaries of research supported by the Alzheimer's and Related Diseases Research Award Fund (ARDRAF), details on the many initiatives of our federal award in the Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Program, and more.
