Staff Well-Being: Age-Friendly
Post-Acute and Long-Term Care ECHO: Staff Well-Being Training Series

The Iowa Geriatric Education Center and St. Louis University invite you to join the Post-Acute and Long-Term Care ECHO (PAC/LTC). This fall, ECHO sessions co-presented by leaders in Kansas and Iowa will focus on health promotion and wellness for staff and residents alike. The no-cost, collaborative and interactive online training programs introduce Age Friendly care as a framework for guiding staff support, well-being, and health that are essential to residents’ quality of care, staff quality of work life and retention.

Sept. 22: Age-Friendly Systems and Care: An Introduction

Age-Friendly Care promotes engaging older adults in decision-making about their care, starting with What Matters most to them-in life, and health. The 4Ms framework examines interactions among what Matters, Medication, Mobility, and Mentation (or Mental health). Although designed with older adults in mind, the health system approach supports staff wellbeing by engaging daily care providers in health-promoting practices. Three subsequent programs build on What Matters and Mental health as they relate to staff wellness and coping.
