We partner with Aging and Disability Services (ADS) of Seattle-King County to create and disseminate Self-Management Plans for patients, family, and caregivers. There are over 25 plans available in multiple languages to help patients, family, and caregivers manage common chronic health conditions. The plans use traffic light flags to help decide when to seek care from a health professional (green = good health, yellow = warnings, red = emergencies).
ADS collaborates with community partners, including hospitals, Medicare QIOs, and various professional disciplines, to develop patient education materials for common chronic health conditions. The plans incorporate Age-Friendly Health Care’s 4Ms framework.
