Exploratory Analyses of Adherence Strategies and Data Sets from CALERIE to Investigate ... - 0 views

  •  
    The National Institute on Aging (NIA) invites applications for new exploratory research projects (R21) involving secondary analyses of data in the Computerized Tracking System (CTS) database from the CALERIE (Comprehensive Assessment of Long-term Effects of Reducing Intake of Energy) trial to explore behavioral and psychosocial aspects of sustained caloric restriction (CR) in humans, including the translation of the CR adherence strategies used in the trial to promote healthy behaviors, especially for the prevention of weight gain with age. CALERIE was the first trial in humans to specifically focus on the effects of sustained CR. It demonstrated feasibility of sustained human CR (for at least two years) and favorable effects on predictors of longevity, as well as on cardiometabolic risk factors. The sustained weight loss in CALERIE has not been previously attained in any clinical study in non-obese individuals.

Collaborative Network to Advance Deprescribing Research for Older Adults with Multiple ... - 0 views

  •  
    Deprescribing, the cessation of long-term therapy under clinician supervision, is a fundamental technique of geriatric practice and palliative medicine to address inappropriate medication use and/or polypharmacy common among older adults with multimorbidity. Important research gaps remain whose resolution may improve approaches to deprescribing and may improve health outcomes by optimizing the goal-directed care of older adults with multiple chronic conditions. This FOA is intended to support a collaborative network to advance scientific research into techniques and outcomes of deprescribing medications for prevention and treatment of older adults with multiple chronic conditions. This network should address the scientific, safety, ethical, and logistical challenges of deprescribing trials and may incorporate focused attention to other relevant and well-justified topics, such as the risks and benefits of target medications, or alternative approaches that may substitute for the deprescribed drugs. This FOA will support the establishment and initial operations of a network over the 5-year grant period including development of collaborations, resources, and infrastructure.

Innovations in Nutrition Programs and Services - 0 views

  •  
    This funding opportunity is for competitive grants to be awarded under the OAA Title IV authority to increase the evidenced based knowledge base of nutrition providers, drive improved health outcomes for program recipients by promoting higher service quality, and increase program efficiency through innovative nutrition service delivery models. Funding will support innovative and promising practices that move the aging network towards evidenced based practices that enhance the quality, effectiveness of nutrition services programs or outcomes within the aging services network. Innovation can include service products that appeal to caregivers (such as web-based ordering systems and carryout food products), increased involvement of volunteers (such as retired chefs), consideration of eating habits and choice (such as variable meal times, salad bars, or more fresh fruits and vegetables), new service models (testing variations and hybrid strategies) and other innovations to better serve a generation of consumers whose needs and preferences are different. Innovative and promising practices may include the testing and publishing of positive outcomes in which nutrition programs provide a meaningful role in support of the health and long-term care of older individuals. Outcomes should focus on methods to improve collaboration with local health care entities, decrease health care costs for a specific population or decrease the incidence of the need for institutionalization among older adults. Through this program, funds may be used to help develop and test additional models or to replicate models that have already been tested in other community-based settings.
