SHAG and its UW partners are using PHPDA funds as a Planning Grant with a goal to identify and assess primary medication-use risks and barriers among older adults living independently in SHAG. The focus of this effort will be in South King County and South Seattle and include population groups facing multiple and compounding healthcare disparities. The Planning Grant supports four phases: the study; the analysis; the report; and the plan. This undertaking will provide baseline information from which a future medication intervention can be designed.
