Sponsored by the Achieving Health Equity Among Diverse Older Adults (AHEAD) Special Interest Group, Patient Priorities Care Special Interest Group, and the Care Transitions Special Interest Group
Moderator: Sonja L. Rosen, MD

This is an action-oriented session where a diverse group of experts – a surgeon, physician and pharmacist - share the proactive ways they used Quality Metrics as a vehicle to help diverse health systems – emergency medicine, peri-operative, health system and nursing homes - to measurably improve the care of older adults. Learning Objectives: (1) apply and analyze current quality metrics that apply to best geriatrics practice as a method to advocate for better outcomes in the learner's healthcare setting; (2) describe how to engage multiple stakeholders across healthcare to improve quality of care to older adults no matter their background; (3) identify key ways apply and analyze techniques to reduce bias in the development of a quality improvement project around existing quality and performance measures; and (4) implement and evaluate best practices in geriatrics through quality implementation at their healthcare practice.
