As more of us live longer, we have a powerful opportunity to reimagine healthcare in ways that help us remain active and vital in our homes and communities. At Drexel University College of Nursing and Health Professions (CNHP), we believe that we need to re-engineer our current programs and policies to better serve the growing numbers of people aging with chronic conditions and overcome the preparatory limitations of today’s healthcare workforce.
CNHP’s new AgeWell Collaboratory serves as a center without walls to bring together researchers, community-based organizations and educators to disrupt the traditional healthcare system’s approach towards caring for older adults in order to pave the way for new, proven strategies that improve healthy aging across the lifespan.
The AgeWell Collaboratory is developing innovative approaches to:
- Prepare clinicians in all disciplines to address the needs of a diverse and growing older population.
- Generate and test novel solutions for enhancing the everyday life of all of us as we age.
- Disseminate new, evidence-based knowledge and care models via community engagement strategies and a wide range of professional activities and different outlets.
