The SCAN Foundation Announces New Grants Aimed at Refocusing the Debate About Healthcare for Seniors
Date:11/20/2008

LONG BEACH, Calif., Nov. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its mission to spur research and reform about critical healthcare issues facing America's growing senior population, The SCAN Foundation announced today it has awarded nearly $1.4 million in grants aimed at recasting the dialogue between health professionals, policymakers, and the public about how to provide long-term healthcare. The grants were made to Health Affairs to fund two (2) special projects related to long-term care and to the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) to develop a special section on aging for submission to JAMA (the Journal of the American Medical Association).

"More and more seniors are dissatisfied with the present model of care," said Dr. Bruce Chernof, chief executive officer of The SCAN Foundation. "They want a sustainable continuum of quality care that aims to avoid long hospital or seemingly inevitable nursing home stays, care that responds to their lifestyles and is centered on keeping them independent in the settings they prefer. The challenges are developing new medical practice models to deliver this care and reforming the way we pay for it. We are pleased to join with these organizations in developing answers to these challenges."

A $450,000 two-year grant to UCSF will support the organization and writing of a special patient and caregiver-focused section on aging and independence to be submitted for peer review and possible publication in JAMA. For this special section, Dr. Seth Landefeld and colleagues at the UCSF will organize the section, interview patients, and work with experts in the field who will author articles on issues in aging important to maintaining independence and reducing morbidity. The grant will fund these editorial activities at UCSF.
