The MTCI provides training, tools and resources to social service and health professionals to better serve the mobility management and planning needs of their older clients and their family members. There are a number of ways to utilize this site and otherwise get involved:
- By learning about the Assessment of Readiness for Mobility Transition (ARMT) tool and incorporating this into general practice with older adults. Click on the ARMT link above to learn about the tool and view brief training video clips. Click on the Curriculum link above to view a series of longer training modules which place the ARMT tool into the broader context of mobility transition in aging and associated counseling intervention.
- By joining a national (an international) community of mobility counselors and managers committed to person-centered, tailored intervention for optimal mobility. Drs. Meuser and Berg-Weger hope this site will eventually become the hub for this community, including blogging, Q&A, sharing of tools and tips, etc. If you are interested in being part of this effort, send an e-mail with name, professional background and contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- By incorporating the ARMT into a research project or community survey. The ARMT is a copyrighted instrument and may be copied freely for clinical and supportive care purposes. The authors reserve the right to review and approve research uses of this scale. If this is your interest, send a paragraph explaining your study and the ARMT’s inclusion to email@example.com.
- By providing feedback on the ARMT from your clinical practice. Drs. Meuser and Berg-Weger are always on the lookout for good stories, case examples, specific experiences, constructive feedback, etc. If you wish to share about your use of the tool and/or your own preferences in conducting mobility interventions with older adults, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
