Comments:  | Leave A Comment

The RAPID: Knee Pain Research study is for adults 60 and older who are living with knee pain caused by arthritis. People living with knee pain are often stressed. This stress and pain put them at risk of depression, worry and trouble with movement. Our aim is to reduce knee pain, improve walking and strength and reduce the stress of living with knee pain. The study will include physical therapy. It will also include brief health coaching to help people become more physically active, better manage their pain, improve sleep and learn how to better manage daily problems. You will be seen eight to 16 times over the course of eight to 16 weeks. There are four follow-up appointments over the course of a year. All interventions are free. There is no cost to join the study, and participants will be paid for their time. We work with primary care doctors to make sure people can safely participate in the project.
The RECALL: Brain Health study is also for adults 60 and older. If you or someone you care about has trouble remembering things, you may be eligible to participate. The research team will examine health, mood and memory. You will be seen eight to 12 times over the course of eight to 16 weeks. Then you’ll return for visits three, six, nine and 12 months later. You may learn skills to help you solve everyday problems, improve your sleep and exercise better. There is no cost to join the study, and participants will be paid for their time.
The Depression ABC (Agency-Based Collaborative) study is for adults 60 and older who receive assistance with meals, transportation or personal care.

You may also learn skills to help you solve everyday problems. There is no cost to join the study, and participants will be paid for their time.
