NewCourtland Center for Transitions and Health

Meeting the complex health care needs of the individuals coping with chronic illnesses such as heart failure, diabetes and depression in a person-centered, safe, timely, effective and efficient manner will be a, if not the, dominant health care challenge in the next few decades.

Our research agenda focuses on the growing population of chronically ill adults with a special focus on frail older adults and their family caregivers. Using multiple research methods, the research being conducted by our members is creating a body of knowledge that will directly benefit this vulnerable population. 


"Nurses will play a pivotal role in addressing the health care needs of people throughout the 21st century. The cutting edge science, led by nurses and designed to advance knowledge related to promoting healthy lifestyles and caring for the chronically ill, will position nurses and other health team members to make a major difference in the lives of these people."
