Roundtable: Translating Aging Research into Practice
Tuesday, November 18, 2014: 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
Successful translation of research into practice is critical in turning evidence into better population health outcomes. These presenters will address a wide range of topics such as: strategies to improve patient engagement, measurement of frailty, the role fidelity observations, lessons in the provision of technical assistance, and the issue of persistent eldercare responsibility among workers.
Session Objectives: Discuss the latest evidence in translating aging research into practice
Discuss the value of implementing community-based programs to increase the use of clinical preventive services by older adults
Describe the different engagement, delivery and follow up strategies that are effective in increasing the use of clinical preventive services
Evaluate the strategies that are most effective in linking older adults to needed preventive health services
Design a new measure of frailty that takes into consideration how each of the characteristic is related to mortality. Assess the association of frailty with demographics and health characteristics. Compare this new measure for frailty to existing measures of frailty. Evaluate, interrelationship of frailty, functional status, and comorbidity.
Demonstrate that fidelity observations ensure maintenance of core components of the program
Describe that fidelity observations play an important role in successful translation of interventions found to be effective in controlled settings into community-based settings
