Current Projects

Safe medication use

A 5-year $3.5M NIH-funded trial led by Dr. Holden on the effect of the Brain Safe mobile app on older adults' exposure to high-risk medications, cognition, and quality of life.
A 5-year $3.3M NIH-funded trial led by Dr. Campbell on the effect of a pharmacist-based deprescribing intervention on older adult cognition and dementia risk.
A 4-year $4M AHRQ-funded project to establish the Brain Health Patient Safety Laboratory ("Brain Safety Lab") to reduce brain harm among older adults at Eskenazi Health safety-net system.

Dementia care and technology

A 2-year $424k NIH award (Holden/Werner co-PIs). Helping the helpers: User-centered technology to aid caregiver management of medications for people with ADRD.
A 2-year $427k NIH-funded trial led by co-PIs Holden and Boustani, testing the integration of the Brain CareNotes app into a coordinated dementia care program.
Two NIH funded studies totaling $575k to develop and test technologies for remotely monitoring the sleep and gait of individuals with Alzheimer's disease.

Heart failure self-management and technology

Two-year $300k AHRQ-funded grant led by Dr. Holden to design and evaluate a technology supporting older adult self-management of heart failure, leveraging data from their implanted devices.
NIH-funded study (Holden, PI) to develop and test an intervention to promote self-care behavior, knowledge, and activation among older patients with heart failure.

Emerging projects and pilots

Past projects

A "middle-tech" project combining familiar objects such as paper and cloth with electronic components to provide effective, personalized, and easy to use interventions for older adults.
A rapid translational field research project to determine the usability of tablet computers for older adults with depression or mild cognitive impairment.
A community partnership to involve community stakeholders in the design and evaluation of technologies promoting a health aging brain.
This is a project to design and build an information management system for the network of people caring for an older adult diagnosed with a life-altering disease.
