abstract

  • Does anyone working in home care have the time to do one more thing? We would think most clinicians, administrators, educators, and quality improvement coordinators would answer "NO." This article provides a current example of what happened when three Medicare-certified home health agencies answered "YES" to a research partnership dedicated to addressing the unique challenges of enhancing late-life depression treatment and outcomes in the home care setting. The development of an ongoing home care agency-university partnership is described to stimulate other agencies to consider this type of research collaboration.
