Helping Improve Care for Other Patients – April CARE Connections

What is it like for an older adult to go from being a patient with bad healthcare experiences to serving as a research advisor? Read about one person’s experiences in the April 2023 issue of CARE Connections, the monthly newsletter of the SoN’s Center for Aging Research and Education. Here’s an excerpt:

“I kept saying to my husband, I need to get to know her,” remembers Bartel. “The answers are going to have to come through research. We can figure out how to create better hospitals and healthcare to prevent MRSA.”

This month’s CARE Connections also includes a toolkit to support healthy aging in rural communities; a profile of CARE Affiliate Tonya Roberts, PhD, RN; and news related to older adult health and well-being.
