This guide from West Health Institute and the University of California, Irvine details how to implement a social needs screening and referral program for older patients into clinical practice. It is intended for primary care providers serving older patients, but can also be applied to other clinical settings such as emergency departments.

The interactive guide provides an approach to address the social needs of older adult patients in four stages: ASSESS readiness, PREPARE teams and partners, IMPLEMENT the intervention, and EVALUATE the impact. It is based on a care coordination model developed by West Health Institute and the University of California, Irvine called the 360° Caregiving Solution model.
