Asset mapping is a process of identifying and recording the skills, talents, and resources of an individual, group, or community. Individual and group assets can be categorized as gifts, talents, expertise, knowledge, and resources. Community asset mapping is an approach used to identify the supportive features in a community that contribute to the ability of individuals to age in place with dignity. The process of asset mapping begins with person-centered assessments of intrinsic capacities (physical and mental) and extends to determining the assets of the community and of networks, as well as the interactions between them, to promote an age-friendly livable community. The goal of asset mapping is to identify supportive individual and community features designed to match an individual's ever-changing functional ability and, by doing so, mediate the rate of decline, encourage active participation and engagement in society, increase social capital, and improve overall population health. The course draws on real-world examples to enhance skills and promote new knowledge for healthcare providers in all settings. It is particularly pertinent to successful care management of older adults with chronic conditions to support aging in place. This course is part 1 of a two-course series.

The course draws on real-world examples to enhance skills and promote new knowledge for healthcare workers in all settings. It is particularly pertinent to successful care management of older adults with chronic conditions to support aging in place. This course is part 2 of a two-course series.

According to the Institute of Medicine, patient- or person-centered care is defined as "providing care that is respectful of, and responsive to, individual patient preferences, needs and values, and ensuring that patient values guide all clinical decisions." It has been demonstrated that patients and families who are equipped, enabled, empowered, and engaged regarding their care have increased adherence to treatment recommendations, better clinical outcomes, and healthier lifestyle choices. To become a person-centric health care provider, professionals will need to balance the most appropriate clinical outcomes alongside a person's personal circumstances, resources, preferences, and goals. During this presentation, components of person-centered care and emerging evidence related to shared decision-making, patient activation and engagement, self-management, and coordinated and integrated care transitions with be discussed.
