Information from Jennifer Stevens-Lapsley about a therapy program that can truly benefit our patients.
The University of Colorado is examining the benefits of high-intensity strengthening for older adults followJennifer Stevens-Lapsleying a hospital or SNF stay in the home health setting. We are looking for clinicians and facilities to help with referring patients to the study.
Patients benefit from receiving 13 visits of home health PT (at no cost), enhanced clinical oversight, and financial compensation.
Our preliminary work resulted in a 6 fold reduction in rehospitalizations largely attributed to a 3 fold improvement in physical function.
Compensation will be available to clinicians for successful referrals.
Please contact Danielle Derlein (Danielle.Derlein@cuanschutz.edu) or Jennifer Stevens-Lapsley (Jennifer.Stevens-Lapsley@cuanschutz.edu) or call 303-724-9590 if you would be willing to help us optimize care for your patients.
