Grand Rounds: IMPACT Series
Dr. Ab Brody will present on the “Results and lessons learned from the Hospice Advanced Dementia Symptom Management and Quality of Life (HAS-QOL) embedded pragmatic clinical trial.”
Ab Brody, PhD, RN, FAAN, is the pilot core lead of the NIA IMPACT Collaboratory and faculty at the NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing and NYU Grossman School of Medicine. He works at the intersection of geriatrics, palliative care, quality, and equity. The primary goal of his research, clinical, and policy pursuits is to improve the quality of care for older adults with serious illnesses generally, and AD/ADRD specifically, wherever they reside. The HAS-QOL Trial was a 25-site ePCT of a quality improvement program specifically tailored to improve care for persons living with dementia and their care partners receiving hospice across care settings. In this talk he will discuss results and lessons learned from the implementation of this trial that can be utilized for future ePCTs.
