New Resource from the American Geriatrics Society for New and Emerging Investigators with an interest in including Older Adults with Multiple Chronic Conditions in Research
NIDUS is pleased to share that the AGS/AGING LEARNING Collaborative has launched its website and published the first two of a planned eight domain curriculum (the remaining six domains will be published throughout 2023). Powered by the American Geriatrics Society (AGS), funded by NIA (Award Number R25AG071488) and authored by leading geriatrics experts, this website and curriculum is tailored to new and emerging investigators and provides a comprehensive overview of tools and strategies for including older adults with multiple chronic conditions (MCCs) in research.
In addition to the curriculum the website offers access to an online community where investigators will be able to share questions, learnings, and approaches to designing and implementing trials that include older people with MCCs. The self-directed PowerPoint slide sets will also be available as downloadable presentations for investigators and educators who wish to teach about MCCs research.
Finally, the collaborative will be offering podcasts and webinars to bring the curriculum to users in different formats. The first webinar is entitled “Measuring Multimorbidity and Important Outcomes in Older Adults,” Moderated by Drs. Michael Steinman and Sarah Berry, it featured presentations from Sandra Shi, MD, MPH, Michelle Xue, PhD-c, RN, and Natalia Festa, MD, MBA.
