Featuring Stacie Levine

The surge in the nation’s aging population has challenged health care experts to question how we will provide efficient, patient-centered care within the context of looming workforce shortages. High-quality care for older adults, including end-of-life care, requires a diverse range of skills to address the physical, cognitive, and social needs of patients with multiple complex chronic conditions. By 2030 at least 3.5 million additional health care professionals and direct-care workers will be needed, necessitating enhanced training to meet the demand. Join Stacie Levine as she presents innovations in medical education to build the pipeline of qualified physicians and health care professionals to improve the care of older adults.

Stacie Levine, a board-certified physician in geriatrics and hospice and palliative medicine, is chief of the Section of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine at the University of Chicago. Her scholarship focuses on education and program development to improve care for vulnerable older adults and other patients with complex comorbid illnesses, such as cancer. Levine is an experienced mentor of physicians and allied health professionals and a national leader in geriatrics and palliative medicine, with an extensive background in the creation and dissemination of competency-based educational programs. Addressing gaps in the workforce has been an important motivator for her regional and national work. She is currently co–principal investigator of a large-scale, multicenter project in primary palliative care education that involves longitudinal training in clinical and teaching skills, program development, leadership engagement, and patient advocacy for physicians, midlevel providers, social workers, and chaplains from more than 20 health institutions in the greater Chicago region.
