Guiding Principles for the Care of Older Adults with Multimorbidity 

According to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, three out of four adults over the age of 65 have multiple chronic conditions. Improving care of these individuals is a priority for the Department of Health and Human Services and they are a focus of Healthy People 2020.  The American Geriatrics Society has long focused on how best to care for this population and we are pleased to provide resources and tools to assist clinicians in providing optimal care to older adults with multiple chronic health problems.
