Following the profound impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the nursing homes and their residents, nursing home leaders are now navigating a new normal. Given the uncertainties about best practices in this new normal, academic-private research partnerships hold promise to test new care delivery models and identify practices that will help rebuild the nursing home industry to be sustainable, equitable, high-quality, and person-centered. What opportunities exist for collaboration between researchers and nursing home leaders? What areas would benefit most from new evidence to guide care delivery? And what would a successful collaboration look like? Join our panel of nursing home leaders as they discuss opportunities for innovation and partnership with researchers.

Co-sponsored with the PAIR Center’s Roybal Center on Palliative Care in Dementia.
