New Research Leads to More People Preparing for their Care!

Rebecca Sudore, MD and Deborah Barnes, PhD were awarded additional funding from the NIA for a feasibility study to test PREPARE among diverse, older adults with cognitive impairment who are at risk for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, and their caregivers. This is a supplement to their existing R01 Improving Advance Care Planning by Preparing Diverse Seniors for Decision Making to test the efficacy of the advance care planning PREPARE website in a randomized trial among diverse, primary care patients without cognitive impairment.

The Cicely Saunders Institute, King’s College London chose Dr. Sudore’s ‘Defining Advance Care Planning for Adults: A Consensus Definition From a Multidisciplinary Delphi Panel’ as their August 2017 paper of the month.
