Aging Well: Addressing Behavioral Health with Older Adults in Primary Care Settings

The number of adults in the United States age 65 and older is expected to exceed 82 million by 2040. Approximately 16 million of these older adults will have a mental health or substance use condition, and they’ll be turning to their primary care providers for care. What does that mean for you? Join this webinar to learn what you need to know and steps you can take to help your team be prepared to meet behavioral health needs of the older adults you serve. Learn how one primary care provider took steps to identify and address behavioral health concerns in older adults, and hear how integrated primary and behavioral health care can guide your patients toward healthy aging.

After this webinar, participants will:

  • Understand the complex array of health, behavioral and social issues that should be addressed during clinical encounters with older adults
  • Distinguish the differences between common mental health, substance use and physical health conditions
  • Recognize the steps to develop an integrated behavioral health and primary care workforce that is ready to serve an aging population
  • Identify evidence-based practices and other resources for serving older adults in an integrated manner.

Featuring Dr. Steven Bartels, MD, MS, Principal Investigator of the Health Promotion Research Center at Dartmouth; Director, Dartmouth Centers for Health and Aging

About: We follow up on the new year-long Union Leader series about aging in New Hampshire.  The Granite State is now the second-oldest state in the nation, and the aging population will have a huge impact on the economy.

APHA Presentation: Using photovoice to ensure a right to health: Eliciting resident perspectives through the life course to support Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) policies

Title: Using photovoice to ensure a right to health: Eliciting resident perspectives through the life course to support Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) policies

Authors: Semra Aytur, Anna Adachi-Mejia, Emily Dollar, Beth Wheeler, Sara Rainer, Stephanie Kelly, Alyssa Henry, Emily Counts 

Description: The National Prevention Strategy recognizes healthy eating/active living (HEAL) policies as priority areas for preventing chronic disease. The practice of evidence-based public health policy requires understanding the needs, values, and perceptions of community members who will be affected by policies and interventions. We describe how data collected through photovoice, a participatory action research method, can support the development and implementation of HEAL policies. Photovoice integrates participant-initiated photography and facilitated dialogue about perceptions of health. We synthesize data from several photovoice/photo-elicitation projects conducted in New England over the past 5 years pertaining to healthy eating/active living, neighborhood safety, sleep, and adaptive sports participation. Participants ranged in age from pre-adolescent through older adult; they included rural residents, urban refugees, and youth with disabilities. We present lessons learned about how photovoice can facilitate resident empowerment and engagement with respect to multi-sectoral policies and planning processes. These lessons relate to federal policies (e.g., implementation of the National Prevention Strategy, the Individuals with Disabilities Act, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (ensuring equitable school athletic opportunities for students with disabilities)); state policies (e.g., implementation of the New Hampshire (NH) State Health Improvement Plan and the NH HEAL plan); municipal policies (e.g., joint-use agreements; strategies to promote access to safe parks/recreational spaces); and clinical-community strategies (e.g., enabling primary-care providers to better support patients in achieving physical activity goals). Photovoice can inform our understanding of barriers, enablers, and contextual differences that must be considered when developing/implementing policies to support healthy behaviors.
