Company: Indiana University
Location: Bloomington
Posted on: May 28, 2023

Job Description:

The I-CARE 2 study is a randomized clinical trial that tests how telehealth technology can positively affect informal caregivers and patients living with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. The project will gather data over time to measure the impact of our evidence-based Brain CareNotes mobile telehealth app on informal caregiver burden and patients' behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia, in a diverse Indiana-wide sample. Under the direction of Dr. Richard Holden, the study has a joint presence in Bloomington, Indianapolis, and online. Research for the study is highly interdisciplinary, applying expertise from social and behavioral sciences, systems engineering and informatics, human-centered design and evaluation, and the health professions. Topics addressed include medication safety; mobile health, sensors, and other technology; healthy aging and disease prevention; family caregiving for people with dementia; participatory design of interventions; and social determinants of health and healthy equity. The research lab pursues better health, by design through the development and testing of sociotechnical interventions in key areas of prevention and care.

The lab offers its team members skills development, professional advancement, and competitive funding.

Dr. Holden is Professor and Chair of Health & Wellness Design at Indiana University School of Public Health-Bloomington. He is a Jack A. Kraft Innovator, Regenstrief Venture Fellow, CHIIS's Chief Healthcare Engineer, and Dean's Eminent Scholar ... but most of all, he is a dedicated mentor. Those working in his labs are eligible for mentorship and project opportunities from a network of over a dozen faculty in and outside the Department of Health & Wellness Design and the Indiana University School of Public Health-Bloomington. Health & Wellness Design is an academic department with 20 full-time faculty, over 400 students enrolled in BS, MS, MPH, and PhD programs, and closely connected to Indiana University and Purdue University schools of Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, Pharmacy, Engineering, Informatics, Art & Design, Public and Environmental Affairs, and Public Health as well as other state entities including Regenstrief Institute, Inc., the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute, IU Health and Eskenazi Health.
