Talk NERDY to Me

Research shows that involving older adult patients in decision-making about their healthcare leads to better patient outcomes and satisfaction. Older adult patient and family caregiver engagement in research is more critical than ever to the Alliance’s overall mission.

With support from the PCORI, the Alliance created the Talk NERDY to Me Network. NERDY stands for Nurturing Engagement in Research and Development with You.

The Talk NERDY to Me Network trains a new group of older adult patients and family caregivers each year on:

  • Patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) and the clinical trials process;
  • How to develop research questions that are important to older patients and their family caregivers; and
  • How to find PCOR opportunities and encourage others to do the same.
