The Res-Care-AL Intervention Study

This presentation was made at the fifth annual meeting of the Interdisciplinary Nursing Quality Research Initiative and depicts a randomized controlled trial to test a restorative care intervention for assisted living. The project incorporated patient centered outcomes (falls); nursing centered outcomes (restorative care services); and system-centered outcomes (staff turnover) as designated by the National Quality Forum. The primary aim of this study was to maintain or improve the residents' physical activity, physical status, function, and length of stay in the facility. The secondary aim related to residents' focuses on mood, life satisfaction, resilience, self-efficacy and outcome expectations, social-support for exercise, and person-environment fit. This team was co-led by Barbara Resnick, PhD, CRNP, a nurse researcher, and Sheryl Zimmerman, PhD, MSW, a social worker.
