Mobility Matters for Age-Friendly Care – Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI)

Preventing injuries from falls, especially among the elderly, has been a flagship issue for health care quality improvement and patient safety for nearly two decades. The complications that can follow broken bones at an advanced age, most notably a broken hip, can literally be deadly. This reality, numerous programs, and reporting requirements have kept falls prevention front and center across the health care continuum. 

Now a new initiative wants to emphasize the physical and mental health benefits of mobility, and encourage greater mobility for older patients in conjunction with falls prevention, as part of a broadening vision of “age-friendly” care. This webinar will explore what this looks like starting with the hospital setting.

  • Mary Tinetti, MD, Gladys Phillips Crofoot Professor of Medicine (Geriatrics) and professor, Institution for Social and Policy Studies; section chief, Geriatrics (co-chair)
