Drs. King and Steege Awarded Administrative Supplement for Grants in Health Services

Barb King, PhD, RN, APRN-BC, FAAN, and Linsey Steege, PhD, were awarded an Administrative Supplement for Grants in Health Services to support the study Preventing Hospital-Acquired Disability: An Intervention to Improve Older Adult Patient Ambulation–Supplement. The study is funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. The research aims are to test an innovative model of care to improve independent ambulation of older adults both during hospital stay and post discharge, improve healthcare utilization post discharge, and identify ongoing barriers that may impact translation of the intervention across different hospital systems. The investigative team includes Drs. Roger Brown, Jane Mahoney (School of Medicine and Public Health), and Willie Choi (School of Business). The project benefits from a community partnership and subaward led by Dr. Mary Hook (Aurora Health Care, Inc.). The total supplement award costs are $51,638. Congratulations to Drs. King and Steege!
