IOM report on averting crisis in care of older Americans releases April 14
Date:4/11/2008

A new report by the Institute of Medicine recommends ways to avert an impending health care crisis as the growing number of older patients increasingly outpaces the number of health care workers with the skills to meet their needs. One in every five Americans will be 65 or older by 2030 as the baby boom generation ages. The report details what the health professions, policymakers, and the public can do to ensure that older Americans get the best care possible.
