The HIGN Research Center is committed to addressing the needs of an aging population by providing research mentorship, conducting nursing science research, and testing the translation of effective interventions into practice.
Uncompromising rigor and relevance to practice are the imperatives on which Hartford Institute’s research is based. The Hartford Institute’s original, innovative, cutting-edge research is focused on better understanding the complicated medical and social needs of older adults and how to better support them on their health journey. Our research aim is to understand system-level factors which influence quality and to translate effective interventions into actual practice by applying novel approaches that transform provider and patient behavior.
The research foci of scientists in the center are categorized in two broad areas:
• Patient Safety & Quality
• Geriatric Health Services
We work with our NYUCN colleagues in chronic disease management, workforce, and HIV/AIDS centers on projects in which older adults are the population of interest.
