'Think Tank' on High Value Care for Vulnerable Older Adults

Maximizing the contributions of nurses

Our health and social systems are ill-equipped to meet the needs of the growing population of older adults with chronic conditions and their family caregivers. We are living longer, but are we living better? A new invitational “Think Tank,” led by Mary Naylor, PhD, RN and Nancy Hodgson, PhD, RN and sponsored by Penn’s School of Nursing, is looking to address these needs through the leadership and skills of the largest and most trusted segment of the health care workforce: nurses.
