IMPAQ is conducting research to understand how Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Program (GWEP) grantees are implementing the initiative across the country, and how the program is encouraging transformations in geriatric clinical care. We are collecting primary data on implementation and preliminary outcomes of the GWEP related to care transformation. These data will help inform future Health Resources and Services Administration programming.
We are collecting rich qualitative data from a subset of GWEP grantees, which we use to design a more structured survey for all GWEP grantees. This approach allows us to capture information from all grantees using an instrument grounded in the context of the program and its stakeholders.
