Learn more about the Patient Priorities Care Curriculum
Patient Priorities Care is an approach that involves aligning care among all of a patient's clinicians with what matters most to that patient—especially older patients who have multiple chronic conditions for whom evidence-based medicine might not exist or be the best choice. It is about understanding each patient's health outcome goals and health care preferences and ensuring that the care provided is in line with those goals. Patient Priorities Care resources address the What Matters “M”, the core element of the Age-Friendly Health Systems (AFHS) 4Ms Framework: what Matters, Medication, Mentation, and Mobility.
