Practice Change Leaders for Aging and Health is a national initiative to develop, support, and expand the influence of organizational leaders who are committed to achieving transformative improvements in care for older adults.
The program is designed to give health organization leaders an opportunity to improve their leadership skills and content expertise in ways that will positively influence care for older adults. Leaders complete a project aimed at integrating improved care for older adults within their organization, allowing them to remain at their full-time job during the one-year program.
To be eligible, applicants must live and practice in the United States and hold a leadership role in a healthcare delivery organization, health-related institution, or community-based organization with direct responsibility for care that impacts older adults. The applicant’s home institution may be a health plan, hospital, ambulatory clinic, home health agency, assisted living facility, nursing home, or community-based agency providing health-related services to older adults. Applicants must be senior enough in their organization to have decision-making authority and be able to effect change.
The program will make up to ten awards of $45,000 in 2017 for the program that commences on January 1, 2018.
Applications must be submitted no later than Wednesday, August 16.
