Patient Priorities Care (PPC) is an approach to care that focuses decision making on older patients' health goals. This can reduce unwanted and unhelpful treatment, such as medications and diagnostic tests, and may improve outcomes for older patients with multiple chronic conditions. A video explaining the approach is available on the PPC website.
