How can research help to improve care and outcomes for individuals receiving post-acute and long-term care? How can academic-industry collaboration evaluate practices, technology, and new ideas to demonstrate efficacy and to translate proven interventions into practice? 

Brown’s Center for Long-Term Care Quality & Innovation (Q&I Center) links researchers with providers to test and disseminate interventions to improve care for individuals receiving post-acute and long-term care.

We achieve our mission by partnering with innovators (providers, researchers, or others) who have developed transformative strategies to improve quality of care and outcomes. We don't fund research: we work with innovators to seek funding to prove the interventions effective and/or to spread successes widely.  


Join us!  On July 5, 2017 at 12pm, we are hosting a special guest lecture by Eunice Noell-Waggoner, an Interior Architect from the Center of Design for an Aging Society whose centers on the impact of lighting on aging vision. Over the past two decades, Eunice has raised awareness of the importance of appropriate light for vision and health and participated in related design projects and research. She will be speaking about pilot projects using tunable LED lighting to address circadian rhythm disruption, e.g., for nursing home residents with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.
