Boosters! As I told @NateWeixel, “It’s kind of troubling. Given this is the highest-risk population, it’s exactly the population that should be getting boosted, yet they aren’t getting it, and I think the reason is we made it harder than it needed to be” thehill.com/policy/healthcar…

Hard to believe and accept that after more than 200,000 #COVID19 deaths in nursing homes, Congress has done nothing. Real reform needed.
"COVID lifted the veil and allowed all of us to see the dysfunction," says @harvardmed professor @DavidCGrabowski on the transformation of nursing home care. buff.ly/38vjh9t

Grateful for the opportunity to highlight these issues.
The pandemic made clear problems in the HCBS (home and community-based services) system that were long present, including critically a short-staffed and underpaid workforce. spr.ly/6012z1hAY

Presenting at the US Deprescribing Research Network annual meeting where I learned only 0.2% of Deprescribing research focuses on communities of color according to PubMed. That’s 3 studies out of 1,344 publications. Need much more attention!

Very happy to congratulate AARP’s @NancyLeaMond and @BillSweeneyDC on being named among Washington’s most influential people shaping healthcare policy! From advocating on behalf of caregivers to pushing Medicare reform, your dedication to fighting for the 50-plus is unmatched.
DC is full of people who aren’t elected but who shape the laws that govern the country and ultimately affect the course of history. Here’s our list of the experts and advocates who are playing big roles in Washington’s policy debates. washingtonian.com/2022/05/03…

Ninety-four million people in 26 states and D.C. now have direct access to primary care from advanced practice registered nurses. Prioritizing access for all is essential to achieving #HealthEquity #NursesWeek2022 via @Campaign4Action

Nursing Homes in Special Focus Facility (SFF) program are required by law to be surveyed every 6 months. In @SenBobCasey letter to CMS, @SenateAging review suggests many of the SFFs are not being surveyed as frequently as required by law (cont.) aging.senate.gov/imo/media/d…

The way America provides long-term care for those who can no longer care for themselves is deeply flawed. In this month's @AARP Bulletin, we examine how this came to be — and what can be done to improve it. spr.ly/6014zEG5K

Colleague/friend/mentor ⁦@susanpolicy⁩ connects her journey as a nurse addressing individual needs and making connections to creating public policy. Susan sees “policy = nursing intervention at the community-level.” Pretty mind-blowing!
