Dr. Barb King, PhD, RN, APRN-BC, FAAN and Dr. Diane Farsetta, PhD were awarded a grant to support the project titled UW School of Nursing and UW Health – 4M Initiative. The project is funded by Bader Philanthropies in partnership with UW–Madison School of Nursing and UW Health. The primary goals are to expand UW Health’s Age-Friendly Health Systems pilot, which uses the 4Ms model (What Matters, Medications, Mentation, and Mobility), an evidence-based intervention, and to prepare nursing students to deliver age-friendly care. The project team includes Barb King and Diane Farsetta. The project will also add a to-be-named clinical instructor nursing education lead. Dr. Kari Hirvela of UW Health will lead patient data collection and dissemination efforts. The total project costs are $150,000. Congratulations to Drs. King and Farsetta!
