Hartford Associate Director, Laura Wagner attends Johns Hopkins Summer Research Institute

On June 11-13, 2014, Hartford Associate Director and Assistant Professor, Community Health Systems, Laura Wagner, PhD, RN, FAAN attended the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing Center for Innovative Care in Aging, Summer Research Institute, "Developing Behavioral Interventions." The Institute is designed to help participants develop testable interventions that have the potential for implementation in practice environments and advance appropriate trial designs. Through discussions of their intervention and study ideas with nationally recognized experts, engaging in small group consultation, and listening to state-of-the-science lectures, Summer Research Institute participants gain hands-on practical knowledge and skills to advance their respective intervention studies.  Dr. Wagner's focus for the institute was to learn how to better conduct interventional research in nursing home settings.
