  • Dissemination and Implementation of Evidence-Based Practices

    This area of research is focused on the translation of evidence-based behavioral health care for older adults into routine health care settings including a three year research demonstration award from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality that supported: (1) the establishment of the clinical and administrative infrastructure needed to operate an integrated model within three primary healthcare clinics; (2) the implementation of evidence-based clinical services to a large population of older Iowans; and (3) the ongoing delivery of evidence-based, financially sustainable care to older individuals in three primary healthcare clinics.
