Summary View help for Summary
Between August 2009 and July 2011, Vince Mor and colleagues at Brown University's Center for Gerontology and Health Care Research collected information from a nationally representative sample of nursing homes through the use of two separate surveys - an Administrator Survey and a Director of Nursing Survey. The surveys were part of a Program Project grant, Shaping Long-Term Care in America, aimed at capturing the attitudes and practices of providers from a nationally representative sample of U.S. nursing homes for use in addressing the aims of three projects about the impact of state policies, market forces, and organizational factors that impact provider performance and residents' outcomes. The surveys collected information on a variety of different topics, such as hospice, and palliative care, NH staffing, and culture change.
