Seeking Nursing Home Administrators and Assisted Living Directors to Respond to U of M LGBTQ LTC Survey

The University of Minnesota and Rainbow Health are partnering on a new study funded by the National Institutes of Health to improve the experiences of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) older adults in assisted living and nursing homes. This study will focus on the effects of LGBT-specific policies on the provision of care and improving care through the development and implementation of an online staff training program.

The study is led by Drs. Tetyana Shippee, Rajean Moone, Simon Rosser, and a team of researchers and clinicians at the University of Minnesota. They are seeking respondents who are nursing home directors and/or assisted living administrators in Minnesota.

As the number of LGBT older adults seeking your care increases, it is important to understand their unique needs, as well as best and promising practices in policies and training. Participating in this study is an important step towards improving the well-being of LGBT residents, as well as ensuring that you have the tools you need to provide high-quality care. The responses provided are confidential, compensated, and will inform the development and implementation of the training curriculum. Read more and participate today!
