Nursing Facility Influenza Study Opens Enrollment

A team of nationally recognized long-term care researchers from Brown University, Stefan Gravenstein, MD, MPH, CMD, and Vincent Mor, PhD, are undertaking a large-scale quality improvement study to evaluate the impact of the annual influenza vaccine choice on long term care facility residents’ hospitalization risk for the 2017-2018 influenza season.  Nursing facilities that meet eligibility and agree to participate will be asked to complete a survey for which financial compensation is provided.  The foundation will receive a donation of $35 for each facility that participates in this study.
