Our Partners, ALTC
Annals of Long-Term Care: Clinical Care and Aging (ALTC) has forged mutually beneficial relationships with multiple organizations who share ALTC's mission to improve health care for long-term care residents and older adults.
At present, we are actively seeking additional partnerships with like-minded organizations. Our partnership types vary from content-sharing initiatives to shared expertise alliances. Our current alliances are listed below.
The American Geriatrics Society
ALTC is an official journal of the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) who shares ALTC’s mission of improving the care of older adults. AGS is a not-for-profit organization of close to 6000 health care professionals devoted to improving the health, independence, and quality of life of all older people.The Society provides leadership to health care professionals, policy makers, and the public by implementing and advocating for programs in patient care, research, professional and public education, and public policy. The AGS is working to ensure that one day every older American will receive high-quality, patient-centered care.
An independent nonprofit organization, ECRI Institute's mission is to benefit patient care by promoting the highest standards of safety, quality, and cost-effectiveness in healthcare. ALTC is strategically aligned with the Patient Safety, Risk, and Quality (PSRQ)-Aging Services team at ECRI Institute in order to bring readers periodic articles on topics in risk management, quality assurance and performance improvement (QAPI), and safety for persons served throughout the aging services continuum.
GeriPal - a Geriatrics and Palliative Care Blog
A forum for discourse, recent news and research, and freethinking commentary, GeriPal's objectives are: 1) to create an online community of interdisciplinary providers interested in geriatrics or palliative care; 2) to provide an open forum for the exchange of ideas and disruptive commentary that changes clinical practice and health care policy; and 3) to change the world. They aim to be inclusive and welcome the perspectives of generalists, specialists, gerontologists, palliative care clinicians, and anyone else interested in care of the older adults or palliative care. GeriPal was created with the support of the Division of Geriatrics at the University of California, San Francisco, but its content is strictly the work of its authors and has no affiliation with or support from any organization or institution.
