Establishing Benchmarks for Quality Care for an Aging Population: Caring for Vulnerable Older Adults

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

In this issue, Wenger and colleagues found that preventive care, chronic care, and care of geriatric conditions in U.S. vulnerable elders are often suboptimal. We need to focus much more attention on medical care for the most vulnerable third of the older population. Reimbursement practices must change so that they support practice patterns necessary to provide such care.
