The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) is holding a webinar on March 22, "Mobility Matters for Age-Friendly Care."

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. Now a new initiative, Creating Age-Friendly Health Systems, 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​ - the webinar will explore what this looks like, starting with the hospital setting.

Speakers are:

  • Mary Tinetti, MD, Gladys Phillips Crofoot Professor of Medicine (Geriatrics) and Professor, Institution for Social and Policy Studies; Section Chief, Geriatrics (co-chair)
  • Marie Cleary-Fishman, BSN, MS, MBA, CPHQ, CPPS, CHCQM, Vice President, Clinical Quality, Health Research & Educational Trust (AHA)
  • J. Michelle Moccia, DNP, ANP-BC, CCRN, Program Director, Senior Emergency Center, St. Mary Mercy Hospital (Trinity Health)
  • Belinda Dokic, CPht, BA, MBA, Quality Performance Improvement Leader, St. Mary Mercy Hospital (Trinity Health)
