The Senior Mentoring Program At Vcu’S School Of Medicine, Leland H. Waters, Madeline Mcintyre

Case Studies from Age in Action

Educational Objectives

1. To demonstrate the value of senior mentoring in geriatrics education for medical students.

2. To provide a framework for positively influencing student attitudes toward older adults.

3. To describe the underlying human relationships that contribute to patient-centered care.

4. To describe effective verbal and non-verbal skills to establish and build relationships.


Loneliness In Later Life, Edward F. Ansello Jan 2019

Loneliness In Later Life, Edward F. Ansello

Director's Editorials from Age in Action

The National Social Life, Health and Aging Project (NSHAP) at the University of Chicago notes that persistent loneliness in later life is the exception rather than the rule. When it occurs, it’s most likely to be a transient condition and remediable.


Providers’ Perception Of Alert Fatigue After Implementation Of User-Filtered Warnings, Hina Afaq, Sahaana Mukundan, Sadaf Zia, Alisa K. Escano Dr., Rebecca Lear Dr., Casey Washington Dr. Jan 2019

Providers’ Perception Of Alert Fatigue After Implementation Of User-Filtered Warnings, Hina Afaq, Sahaana Mukundan, Sadaf Zia, Alisa K. Escano Dr., Rebecca Lear Dr., Casey Washington Dr.

Pharmacotherapy and Outcomes Science Publications

Alert fatigue is a complex problem that many health institutions face when using an electronic health record (EHR). The addition of user-filtered warnings (UFW) is a physicians’ proposed intervention at Inova Health System (IHS), a large 5-hospital health system in Northern Virginia, that allows prescribers to filter out specific drug-drug interactions and pregnancy and lactation medication alerts for a 30-day period. This study aims to determine the impact of UFW on physicians’ perception of alert fatigue and to calculate the reduction of medication alerts. It was hypothesized that the reduction in alerts will significantly impact physicians’ perception of alert fatigue ...


Predictors Of Experimental And Control Group Attendance: Findings From An Hiv/Std Prevention Rct With Pregnant Women At Risk For Substance Use, Jaclyn S. Sadicario Jan 2019

Predictors Of Experimental And Control Group Attendance: Findings From An Hiv/Std Prevention Rct With Pregnant Women At Risk For Substance Use, Jaclyn S. Sadicario

Theses and Dissertations

Efforts to improve inclusion in research have included mandating the recruitment of ethnic minorities and women into NIH funded studies. However, little research has been completed on who attends such interventions. This is particularly worrisome in populations for which attendance to interventions can have dire consequences. HIV is a public health concern for pregnant women in substance using communities, as pregnant women are much less likely to use condoms during intercourse to prevent HIV. Group modular HIV prevention interventions have long been the standard for HIV prevention. However, little attention in research on HIV prevention interventions RCTs has been focused ...


Characterization Of The Novel Interaction Between Neisseria Gonorrhoeae Tdfj And Its Human Ligand S100a7, Stavros Maurakis Jan 2019

Characterization Of The Novel Interaction Between Neisseria Gonorrhoeae Tdfj And Its Human Ligand S100a7, Stavros Maurakis

Theses and Dissertations

Neisseria gonorrhoeae is an obligate human pathogen that causes the common STI gonorrhea, which presents a growing threat to global health. The WHO estimated 78 million new cases of gonorrhea worldwide in 2017, with estimates of 820,000 new cases in the United States alone according to the CDC. High-frequency phase and antigenic variation inherent in N. gonorrhoeae, coupled with its natural ability to rapidly acquire and stably integrate antimicrobial resistance factors into its genome, have culminated in an infection against which there is no effective vaccine, and for which the list of viable therapeutic options is quickly shrinking. Moreover ...
