The Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, Center for Innovative Care in Aging brings a wide range of activities aimed at advancing research in areas concerning aging to the audiences of researchers who work in the field of gerontology. These include dementia care, functional difficulties, health disparities, fall risk, quality of life, and meaningful activity among older adults with chronic and co-morbid illnesses.
Ongoing and future activities include:
- Five writing groups
- Monthly research-in-progress meetings
- Lectureship series on topics pertinent to behavioral intervention research
- A meaningful exchange and consultation network of behavioral intervention scientists
- A network of practice and community sites willing to participate as research sites or who are interested in implementing evidence-based programs generated by Center faculty and the network of behavioral intervention scientists
Working Groups and Lead Facilitators:
- Activity & well-being – Jeanine M. Parisi, PhD
- Community health workers – Hae-Ra Han, PhD, RN

The "Issue Is..." Seminar Series
A SERIES ON INTERVENTION & IMPLEMENTATION SCIENCE IN AGING
LOCATION & TIME: SELECTED SECOND TUESDAY OF THE MONTH FROM 9 - 10 A.M. (Eastern Time)
Zoom will be available, contact AgingCenter@jhu.edu for access
Light breakfast will be served
The Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing interdivisional and interdisciplinary Center for Innovative Care in Aging will offer a Work in Progress Seminar focusing on issues related to intervention and implementation science in aging. The seminar will serve as a forum for faculty, pre-doctoral and post-doctoral students to explore issues related to behavioral intervention and implementation research or to present ongoing research or emerging intervention ideas and issues.
Through presentation and group discussion, each interactive session will focus on a specific issue, provide an opportunity to present emerging ideas and issues, and receive constructive comments and thoughtful critique to further scholarship in the science of intervention research with older adults. It will also provide a forum to trial run conference and workshop/seminar papers.
The focus of each seminar discussion will vary; however, the series as a whole will provide exposure to the full range of substantive topics related to intervention research with older adults. It is expected that the range of specialty areas, expertise and professional backgrounds of participants will assure exposure to rich discussion, diverse knowledge bases and unique insights.
ROLE OF SESSION CONVENERS
Each session will have a designated convener who articulates the identified issue or challenge provides brief background information and a recommended reading(s) concerning the issue and leads the discussion.
