Product Type : Online Educational Programs
Language : English
Year of publication : 2023



The AGS/AGING LEARNING Collaborative Multiple Chronic Conditions (MCCs) Research Core Curriculum is a free self-directed learning curriculum focused on the science of MCCs for emerging clinician and translational investigators who seek to include older adults with MCCs in their study populations. The MMCs Research Curriculum includes:

  • Self-directed online presentations
  • Podcasts that highlight the main themes from each self-directed presentation
  • Teaching slides
  • Webinars

The curriculum encourages and facilitates research that will address the most important questions and disparities relevant to MCCs; foster a new generation of scientists who are committed to advancing the science of MCCs throughout their careers; and encourage research on MCCs that will ultimately translate into the delivery of higher quality care across the lifespan.

The AGS/AGING Learning, Educating, And Researching National Initiative in Geriatrics ("LEARNING") Collaborative, an R25 grant from the National Institute on Aging (NIA), has been awarded to the American Geriatrics Society in partnership with the Health Care Systems Research Network (HCSRN)-Older Americans Independence Centers (OAICs) AGING (Advancing Geriatrics Infrastructure and Network Growth) Initiative. The Collaborative aims to fill educational and training gaps in multiple chronic conditions (MCCs) research.
