The AGS Guiding Principles for the Care of Older Adults with Multimorbidity have been translated into a framework of Actions and accompanying Action Steps. This session stems from the framework and will cover recent developments in decision-making for older adults with multiple chronic conditions (MCCs). Learning Objectives: (1) identify and communicate patients' health priorities; (2) develop strategies for stopping, starting, or continuing care based on health priorities, potential benefit vs harm and burden, and health trajectory; and (3) provide a framework for aligning decisions and care with patients, caregivers, and other clinicians with patients' health priorities and health trajectory.
