Welcome to the Center for Quality Aging
Welcome to the Vanderbilt Center for Quality Aging. Our Center was established in August, 2006 as part of the Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) Institute of Medicine & Public Health. The mission of the Center for Quality Aging is to foster multidisciplinary aging research to improve quality of care and quality of life for older adults across a variety of care settings.
To fulfill our mission, the Vanderbilt Center for Quality Aging is dedicated to the following goals:
- Conduct innovative research to improve care quality for older adults across the continuum of care to include hospital and emergency care, post-acute care, dementia care within assisted-living and long-term care services.
- Provide mentorship and research training opportunities to the next generation of investigators and clinicians to enhance care quality and independence for older adults; and,
- Provide educational resources for providers, patients and families related to caring for older adults with and without dementia.
The Vanderbilt Center for Quality Aging is comprised of a multi-disciplinary team of research investigators and clinicians (About Us). We are committed to quality geriatric care for older adults with and without dementia. We collaborate with other faculty and related centers at VUMC.
