Pragmatic Trials in Long-Term Care: A Consensus Conference
Virtually | March 10, 2021 | 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM EST | 5.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ | 5.25 CMD Credit
Pragmatic Trials in Long-Term Care: A Consensus Conference, funded by the National Institute of Aging and led by editors of three leading geriatrics journals — JAMDA (The Journal of Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine), JAGS (The Journal of the American Geriatrics Society), and Geriatric Nursing – will identify priorities and best practices for pragmatic trials in long-term care, with a focus on care for persons with dementia.
Experts across the globe agree that we are at a tipping point to improve systems of long-term care for older adults; they also agree that pragmatic trials are the most promising strategy toward that end. However, the focus of such trials, the best methods with which to conduct them, how best to share results, and how best to promote uptake of evidence-proven practices, are far from clear.
Speakers include internationally renowned research experts, directors of national long-term care organizations, and leaders of national associations and societies.
This conference is intended for providers, researchers, and policy makers who aim to promote better care in nursing homes, assisted living communities, and other residential settings that serve older adults.
The primary goal is to identify priorities and best practices for pragmatic trials in long-term care, with a focus on care for persons with dementia.
Upon completing the this program, participants should be able to:
- Identify research priorities for pragmatic trials in long-term care related to functional, psychosocial, and medical care
- Describe how best to design a pragmatic trial so as to maximize adoption and implementation across a range of long-term care settings
- Disseminate results of pragmatic trials to key stakeholders so as to promote uptake of evidence-based practices and policies
