*ASWB CE Credit Changes 2018: Beginning September 25, 2018, ASA will no longer be able to  issue ASWB CE credits for recorded web seminar attendance. You can only claim ASWB CE credit if you watch “Using Evidence-Based Programs to Promote Age-Friendly Health Systems” at 10:00 AM PT on April 4, 2019. We apologize for any inconvenience. This change is due to ASWB ACE Provider distance learning requirements. 

If you require ADA accommodation to participate in this web seminar, please contact Steve Moore at your earliest convenience to make arrangements –

Presenters will give participants background on the Evidence-Based Leadership Council (EBLC), its role in selecting and promoting evidence-based programs and its Program Locator function. The presenters will describe the Age-Friendly Health System’s initiative and its goals. Age-Friendly Health Systems follow the 4M’s framework to provide appropriate care: What Matters—aligning care with older adult’s specific goals; Mentation—managing dementia and depression across care settings; Mobility—ensuring older adults can move safely to accomplish What Matters; and Medications—ensuring that medications do not interfere with the other M’s. Presenters will demonstrate how two evidence-based programs facilitate achieving the 4M’s. Finally, presenters will discuss how to access up-to-date information to find evidence-based programs for clients. The web seminar will be interactive, using audience polls and taking questions to foster dialog.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Identify the criteria for evidence-based program designation and advantages to its use;
  • Identify the 4M’s of an Age-Friendly Health System, and how this framework optimizes value for people and systems;
  • Identify how evidence-based programs integrate with the 4M’s framework; and,
  • Describe how to find additional information and locate evidence-based programs using resources.
