Psychogeriatric Research During COVID-19 Pandemic: Qualitative Analysis of Participant Views [open pdf - 151KB]
From the Document: "Conducting clinical research during pandemics is critical not only for the management of the ongoing pandemic but also for future pandemic preparedness. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), a large integrated health organization and a major sponsor of patient-centered research, is a key player in shaping the conduct of psychogeriatric research in the USA. Sponsored by the VA Office of Research and Development (ORD), VA investigators are involved in over 7,000 funded research projects and often focus on psychogeriatric patient-centered research due to the demographics of Veterans and their family caregivers (ORD, 2020). Hence, it is important to understand how the ORD is handling clinical research during the current pandemic."
