Essential Principles of Age-Friendly Care

August 22, 2022
Recognizing a need for more age-friendly content in their curriculum, Malcolm X College leadership is partnering with SHARE Network to review and enhance their programming to build a more age-friendly workforce. Special attention will be paid to culturally competent care, specifically focusing on urban underserved older adults who populate many of the nursing homes on Chicago's south side.
The current project will be a one-day training that targets Malcolm X College nursing faculty dedicated to incorporating best practices of age-friendly health systems into their curriculum. This training will provide education around age-friendly care, care transitions, and nursing home care to train nursing and nursing assistant students and prepare them to enter the workforce.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for Malcolm X College nursing faculty and staff who educate future healthcare professionals.

Learning Objectives

After this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Identify how existing nursing school programming can be adapted to build a more age-friendly nursing workforce;
  • Describe experiential learning opportunities to practice in nursing home settings after graduation that encourage recruitment and retention;
  • Recall 4M leadership training for students who become nurses or nursing home staff that will improve patient care.
