Hartford Institute Primary Care of Older Adults (HIPCOA)
The goal of HIPCOA is to build the capacity of the healthcare workforce in geriatrics. This will be accomplished by a multi-modal education intervention aimed at improving the knowledge and skill sets of primary care providers, faculty members and students. Through the creation, testing, and nationwide dissemination of a series of primary care-focused online learning modules, the PCOA program will create a systematic approach to embed in primary care settings patient- and family-centered and evidence-based care that is responsive to the particular needs of older adults.
The Project is managed by the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing (HIGN) at New York University College of Nursing, in coordination with the Consortium of New York Geriatric Education Centers (CNYGEC) at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) and the National Nurses Care Consortium (NNCC).
This project is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Health Resources and Services Administration. Learn more.
