Abstract

The diversity of needs and goals among older adults is increasing with demographic shifts. The ability of any healthcare provider to deliver a high-quality/high-value, person-centered encounter depends on a number of factors, including licensure/scope of practice and other systems-level factors, including education/preparation, relevant policies, team connectedness, and quality measures. This article examines the question of scope of practice from a broad perspective of what is needed and what is possible, with the goal of identifying the right person at the right time to provide high-value, high-quality, person-centered care for older adults.
