The number of people living in the United States over the age of 65 is rapidly growing and is projected to reach around 95 million by 2060. The U.S. healthcare system faces many barriers to addressing the complex care needs of older adults in the country. This session highlights PCORI’s range of investments over the years to promote the health of older adults in the U.S including the funding of comparative clinical effectiveness research and research related projects to engage patients and the broader health and healthcare community, synthesize findings from existing research, and support the dissemination and implementation of effective interventions. PCORI-funded awardees will discuss their projects and engage the audience in an interactive discussion to identify promising directions for future work.
