Nursing Facility Influenza Study Opens Enrollment

A team of nationally recognized long-term care researchers from Brown University Stefan Gravenstein, MD, MPH, 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 2019-2020 influenza season. Nursing facilities that meet eligibility and agree to participate will be allocated to one of two CDC recommended influenza vaccines for adults. Facilities will also receive a free supply of vaccine for staff. The Foundation for PALTC Medicine will receive a donation of $100 for each facility that enrolls in this study based on their referral.
