The Industry Advisory Board (IAB) is a partnership between the Foundation for Post-Acute/Long-Term Care Medicine and representatives from divisions of industries with an interest in post-acute/long-term care medicine (PA/LTC).
The Foundation for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine is a signer of the Council for Medical Specialty Societies Code of Interaction with Companies and develops policies and procedures to guide Society‐Company interactions to be in line with the Code.
The IAB creates a forum where AMDA members and industry leaders can come together to discuss issues of mutual interest with goals to:
- Identify collaborative opportunities to advance effectiveness in PA/ LTC medicine through conversations with top leaders in geriatrics and PA/LTC including: board level representatives from AMDA, ABPLM, the Foundation, and university, home and community-based geriatricians and gerontologists;
- Participate in discussions related to disease state management and patient-centered care affecting the entire PA/LTC industry;
- Gain mutual understanding of current issues and trends in geriatric medicine across the PA/LTC continuum, including nursing homes, assisted living, and community-based care; and
- Discuss the future state and how to stay ahead of anticipated changes impacting PA/LTC.
