Dr. Barbara Resnick

What has been the impact of your INQRI project? To raise awareness of the importance of function and optimizing function in assisted living settings at the individual nurse level as well as the industry level.

How did interdisciplinary collaboration impact your INQRI study? It gave me the financial resources to be able to do the project and increased the focus on dissemination as well as effectiveness.

What impact has the INQRI program itself had on your research? Turned the focus of my function focused care work toward more of dissemination approach. We have sufficiently established the benefit in long term care settings and are now trying to change behavior at a larger level.
