UTMB awarded $4.9 million grant to improve healthcare for the elderly

By Sealy Center on Aging  | UTMB Newsroom |  05/21/14   

Dr. Goodwin
UTMB has been awarded a $4.97 million grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) for a center on "Patient Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) in the Elderly" led by Dr. James S. Goodwin at UTMB. "The overall goal is to promote patient-centered care, by determining the range of different outcomes most important to patients with different diseases, and how well currently available treatments help achieve those outcomes," said Goodwin.

UTMB study finds wide regional variation in stroke rehab

By Sealy Center on Aging  | Bay Area Citizen |  05/08/14   


Researchers at UTMB have found that rehabilitation outcomes for people who have had a stroke vary greatly depending on where they live in the United States. The study, recently published in the journal Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, examined Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services records from 143,036 patients discharged from inpatient rehabilitation during 2006 and 2007. Researchers focused on length of stay, functional status (discharge motor and cognitive status, overall functional change) and the percentage of patients discharged to the community. The study found a 20 percent difference in community discharge rates across regions. The region with the highest percentage of community discharge was the Southwest (79.1 percent), while the lowest region was the Northeast (59.4 percent). "Understanding how geographic variability is associated with outcomes will help rehabilitation professionals and administrators implement practice guidelines and quality improvement programs designed to improve care in areas with poor outcomes," said lead author Timothy Reistetter, an associate professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences. "An important step in this process is to describe region-specific outcomes of rehabilitative care at the national level." More about the stroke related research project in PCOR at UTMB.

Stroke rehabilitation outcomes vary widely by geographic region
Guidry News Service recently visited with Dr. Timothy Reistetter, an associate professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, who is the lead author on research which found that rehabilitation outcomes for people who have had a stroke vary greatly depending on where they live in the United States. Listen at Guidry News (14:39). The study was recently published in the journal Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. More about the stroke related research project in PCOR at UTMB.



UTMB study seeks to engage community in medical ethics issues

UTMB researchers are hopeful that discussions among non-healthcare communities may provide insight to the ethical questions that can arise with rising costs and emerging technologies and procedures. Researchers also want to learn more about how people in different social circles form opinions or make decisions about their healthcare. That could help shape health policy. The study is part of a project overseen by Dr. James Goodwin and funded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute. To complete the study, UTMB faculty worked with two different communities in Galveston. "Nowhere in the U.S., right now, is there regular engagement of ordinary citizens in bioethics dialog in a sustained manner," [previous] study coordinator Dr. Howard Brody observed. "We are trying to show at UTMB, taking advantage of the cultural diversity of our region, that this is a feasible way to enrich bioethics debate in the future." More about the ethics related research project in PCOR at UTMB.
