The Flourish Care Model: Utilizing the Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Program (GWEP) to Implement a Shared-Care Approach to Health Care for Older Adults

Event Description: 

The Aging and Disability Business Institute is hosting a webinar on the Flourish Care model. The Flourish Care model developed partnerships between primary care practices, local area agencies on aging and community coalitions to promote effective care coordination and quality care for older adults in rural areas. This is a shared-care approach to healthcare and functions from the belief that health is more than just visiting a primary care physician and taking medications. This webinar will share lessons learned from this partnership and report on preliminary results on care improvement for older adults with two or more chronic conditions. Two case studies will be presented to demonstrate how the Flourish Care model benefited rural older adults.
