ADA Adopts Aging Position Statement

The American Dietetic Association has adopted the Partnership for Health in Aging's position statement on "Interdisciplinary Team Training in Geriatrics: An Essential Component of Quality Healthcare for Older Adults."

ADA is a member of the Partnership. "The rapid growth of our older population poses unique challenges for the U.S. healthcare system,” according to the position statement.

"Geriatric care can be complex and time intensive, and many medical, psychosocial and functional issues must be addressed simultaneously. For treatment to be effective, it must be carefully coordinated. The use of an interdisciplinary team (IDT) is an accepted and well-developed model for care coordination. IDTs have been successfully implemented in a variety of settings and have been shown to improve health-care outcomes."
