Grant Amount


Grant Period

12 months

Approval Date

September 2018


This one-year planning grant, led by Case Western Reserve University Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing in partnership with CVS MinuteClinic and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, will produce training tools and resources that can be used in retail ambulatory care settings to address the “4Ms” of the Age-Friendly Health Systems model (What Matters, Medication, Mentation and Mobility). The project will identify CVS MinuteClinic sites with a large aging demographic for implementation of the professional development modules in a subsequent phase. This effort ultimately aims to scale age-friendly care to all 1,100 CVS MinuteClinic locations across the nation and train more than 2,900 nurse practitioners and physician assistants.
