- My current research focuses on implementing evidence-based rehabilitation interventions into clinical practice to improve the lives of older adults. Currently, we are comparing a new remote self-directed training program to an established instructor-led training program for implementing high-intensity physical rehabilitation. The remote training program targets clinicians who are providing care for Veterans in rural community living centers and state Veterans homes. The self-directed approach to clinician training will offer a more scalable product which will facilitate implementation of high-intensity rehabilitation to Veterans living in rural communities where access is often limited. Long term, we hope the findings of this study will improve the quality of care to Veterans and improve access to evidence-based rehabilitation among rural Veterans.
