An in-depth investigation of care-related issues across the growing aging population will include topics such as chronic illness, subsidized and un-subsidized healthcare related expenses, and needs assessment protocol. The basic model and principles of integrative, interdisciplinary healthcare is presented as the foundation for a team approach to the development of intervention plans, strategies of care, and implementation.
