Join us for a virtual event designed to energize, educate, and engage caregivers and colleagues in Providence’s journey to becoming an Age-Friendly Health System.
To better serve our communities, Providence is one of five pioneering health systems to participate in the creation of an Age-Friendly Health System, which is based on the 4Ms framework: What Matters, Medication, Mentation, and Mobility. In 2019, Providence’s Clinical Council added an essential 5th M for Malnutrition, another common issue for older adults.
During this 3-hour symposium, pioneering partners Don Berwick, MD and Amy Berman, RN will join Providence leaders to discuss the impacts of COVID-19 on older adults, Providence’s commitment to leading as an Age-Friendly Health System, and how we can leverage our “5Ms” framework to guide our way.
