Grants to USA and territories universities and others with accredited health professions programs to incorporate geriatric health care with primary care. Technical webinars will be held December 16, 17, and 18. Of particular importance is providing primary care providers with the knowledge and skills to care for older adults and to collaborate with community partners to address gaps in health care for older adults through individual, system, community, and population level changes.
Focus areas for this announcement are:
1. Transforming clinical training environments to integrated geriatrics and primary care delivery systems to ensure trainees are well prepared to practice in and lead these kinds of systems.
2. Developing providers who can assess and address the needs of older adults and their families/caregivers at the individual, community, and population levels.
3. Creating and delivering community-based programs that will provide patients, families and caregivers with the knowledge and skills to improve health outcomes and the quality of care for the older adult(s).
4. Applicants may also choose to address providing Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD) education to families, caregivers, direct care workers and health professions students, faculty, and providers.
Applicants must propose programs that enhance integrated geriatrics and primary care systems for the training of healthcare providers who care for older adults. Characteristics of integrated geriatrics and primary care systems include, but are not limited to:
• Interprofessional, team-based, patient-centered health care for older adults.
• Integration of geriatrics into evolving primary care delivery systems to provide coordinated and comprehensive healthcare.
• Outreach and education for patients, families, and caregivers to improve the health of older adults.
Applicants must develop collaborations to ensure integrated delivery systems. A collaboration is defined as an association of at least two organizations, hospitals, or institutions that have come together to operate a GWEP. The organizations in the collaboration share resources, decision-making, and accountability for designing and implementing the project. One of the collaborating organizations is designated as the applicant organization.
Interprofessional collaboration is an essential component of all project activities, and medicine must be one of the professions included in all interprofessional activities. The paucity of healthcare workers from diverse backgrounds, including underrepresented ethnic and racial groups, remains a problem in American healthcare, thus, applicants are strongly encouraged to describe activities that will address this area.
