One of the challenges in the current pandemic is how, and where, to properly care for COVID-19 patients once they leave the hospital. Many patients recovering from COVID-19 will need ongoing care to recover from hospitalization, but current models of post-acute in nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities, and home health agencies are ill-suited to care for them. How can we minimize the risk posed of transmission from post-acute patients to vulnerable long-term residents of these facilities? How can we support families in caring for these patients at home, given the inadequacy of the home health care workforce and the continuing mandate to distance socially? Join Penn LDI as a panel of experts explores solutions to the post-acute care crisis posed by COVID-19.

This virtual seminar is open to the public. Please see instructions on how to join below.

The terms "resilience" and "reserve" are used in different and even disparate ways by professionals in different disciplines. In order to advance best practices and research on these topics, it is vital to find common meanings and gain a better understanding of their roles in the health and well-being of older persons. Moreover, in order to develop competitive grant applications, investigators at every professional level may need extra guidance on how to frame their research in this area when applying for related grants from the National Institute on Aging.

The goal of this webinar is to discuss current definitions of resilience and reserve and what makes these topics distinct, and to present a programmatic portfolio and resources to encourage research projects in this growing area of opportunity.

The free, one-hour webinar will explore:

  • What is unique about the resilience paradigm
  • What do we mean by resilience and reserve
  • How is the NIA supporting programmatic developments in resilience and reserve
  • Where to get started: directory of NIA resources

A Q&A will follow.

Please register here by April 28th.

Prior to COVID-19, the U.S. was in the midst of a different epidemic, with nearly 130 people a day dying of an opioid overdose. Individuals with substance use disorders (SUDs) are particularly vulnerable during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the systems of care upon which they rely have been severely constrained. In response, some regulatory policies have been eased and treatment programs have adapted. Our panel of experts will explore the policy and public health implications of the twin epidemics of COVID-19 and opioids, and examine questions such as: In what ways do the populations most affected by COVID-19 and the opioid crisis overlap? How have social distancing and shelter-in-place policies affected access to care for SUD patients? What challenges does COVID-19 pose to SUD treatment and recovery more generally, and what policy levers can we use to address them?

This virtual seminar is free and open to the public.

Amy Pickering Assistant Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering - Tufts University
Location: ONLINE
Description:

As COVID-19 cases continue to grow rapidly across the globe and no cure is yet identified, prevention is essential to slow the spread. Frequent handwashing to interrupt transmission of the virus is one of the main recommendations from national health agencies, the World Health Organization, and other experts, but following handwashing guidance is not necessarily possible or easy for everyone, particularly in low-income countries.

Individuals living in areas with limited and unreliable access to piped water and lacking access to soap are not able to wash their hands regularly. As many as 40% of the global population lacks access to basic handwashing facilities. Others may not be aware of the correct handwashing steps to follow or they may not realize that handwashing can prevent the spread of infectious disease. These structural and knowledge barriers are compounded by a misunderstanding about susceptibility, communicability, and the potential severity of COVID-19.

What are the most effective ways to promote and increase handwashing in a low-income setting? What are the structural barriers these individuals face in doing so and what options are currently available to help them mitigate these barriers? Is information about handwashing and COVID-19 prevention trusted and being effectively communicated to vulnerable communities?

Please join Innovations for Poverty Action for a webinar titled “Increasing Handwashing Adherence: Lessons from Rigorous Evidence,” which will cover evidence from rigorous research on increasing uptake of handwashing and on addressing the structural barriers people face that prevent them from washing their hands. Amy Pickering (Tufts University) and Robert Dreibelbis (London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine) will present and Rachel Steinacher (IPA) will host and moderate.

The presentations will be followed by a discussion and Q&A, where we will cover how the evidence can inform policy, particularly in the face of the current COVID-19 pandemic.
