Webinar 10/30: Nutrition Services Program Outcomes Evaluation

October 25, 2018

Register for the webinar on Oct 30 at 3 pm ET.

ACL's Nutrition Services Program (NSP) (provided through Title III-C under the Older Americans Act) provides access to nutritious meals, facilitates social contact, supports family caregivers, and helps older adults maintain their dignity in their homes and communities. In a continued effort to rebalance long-term care towards home- and community-based services, ACL has conducted a Title III-C NSP Client Outcomes Evaluation to assess program effectiveness, as measured by the program's effects on a variety of key outcomes.

Join the National Resource Center for Nutrition and Aging on Tuesday, October 30, at 3 pm ET to learn about the results and conclusions from Part II of the evaluation that describes participants' health and health care utilization and examines overall wellness measured using longer-term outcomes related to health and avoidance of institutionalization.

Access Part I of the evaluation report that addressed the outcomes of food security, socialization, and diet quality here.

  • Learn about the importance of evaluating Older Americans Act nutrition programs;
  • Learn about the methods used for the soon-to-be released Evaluation of the Effect of the Older Americans Act Title III-C Nutrition Services Program on Participants' Health Care Utilization; and
  • Be able to describe the health and health care utilization of congregate meal and home-delivered meal participants.
