Our team of quality improvement experts will outline the format and structure for the Great Plains Quality Care Coalition (GPQCC), including benefits and expectations of participation. Attendees will learn about the Age Friendly Health Systems 4Ms Framework, which includes four high-level interventions that form a bundle; considered the essential, initial elements that systems need to provide older adults with the best care possible.

  3. Increase Chronic Disease Self-Management {cardiac and vascular health, diabetes and chronic kidney disease}
  4. Increase Quality of Care Transitions
  5. Improve Nursing Home Quality
