Harvard and Brown-Affiliated Researchers Receive $4.5M Grant to Test Videos for Advance Directives
A new NIH-funded project will assess whether videos can help nursing home residents, family members and staff have the difficult but important conversations about advanced directives for care.
Advanced directives help to clarify appropriate care for elderly nursing home residents at critical moments for their health, but the process of having the necessary conversations between residents, family members and home staff is hardly routine. With a new grant from the National Institutes of Health, Susan Mitchell, M.D., M.P.H., director of the Palliative Care Research Center in Harvard-affiliated Hebrew SeniorLife’s Institute for Aging Research along with colleagues from Brown University and Massachusettes General Hospital plan a big test of whether a suite of videos can help.

Hebrew SeniorLife provides elder care, senior housing, and other services in the Greater Boston area to all without regard to race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, political persuasion, or qualified handicap.
