Eldercare Voices Columns: Perspectives from Leading Geriatrics Health Professionals

Improving the care of older adults is a core part of the Center's mission. Starting in 2014 with a grant from The John A. Hartford Foundation, we launched our Geriatrics Provider Collaboration project, with one of its goals being to educate key stakeholders about what good care looks like for dually eligible and other vulnerable older adults.

For the last five years, the Eldercare Voices guest column has provided our newsletter readers with a specialized focus on innovative programs and policies that improve the care of older adults. This feature publishes guest columns written by leading geriatrics and gerontological professionals, highlighting topics within the geriatrics field that have meaningful impact on aging adults, their caregivers and the care they receive. Given the popularity of these columns, we wanted to compile some of the most-viewed columns for dissemination. This brief reprints six columns grouped into three topic categories: Models of Care; Geriatrics Clinical Topics; and Advocating for Better Care. The brief's appendix lists all of the columns by title and author.

The demand for good geriatrics care will continue to grow as 10,000 people in this country are turning 65 every single day, and this is expected to continue into the 2030s.  We hope that this information will contribute to addressing this need through the best shared solutions and practices.
