CTSA Lifespan - Aging Workgroup
Translational science is integrated across its multiple phases and disciplines within complex populations and across the individual lifespan. The goals of this workgroup are:

  • Promote networking between and among CTSA programs and the major gerontological networks (e.g. Older Americans Independence Centers, Alzheimer's Disease Centers) so as to foster collaboration in research and training
  • Improve engagement, identification, recruitment, and retention of older adults in clinical trials
  • Identification of biomarkers of frailty - including both serum markers and performance/assessment of daily activities that can be used as important outcome measures in implementation studies for improving the health of the elderly

The STRIDE Study
The STRIDE Study is a cluster randomized, parallel group superiority trial to determine the effectiveness of an evidence-based, patient-centered multifactorial fall injury prevention strategy.

Each year, 1 out of 3 adults aged 65 and over falls. A third of those falls result in moderate to severe injuries that can lead to further declines in health and loss of independence. STRIDE enrolled 5,451 older adults (aged 70 years and older) who are at risk of falls. Patients will be followed for an average of 2.2 years to determine if the intervention has an effect on serious fall-related injuries.

STRIDE is a pragmatic cluster randomized controlled clinical trial that is taking place in 10 clinical trial sites and 86 primary care practice sites located around the U.S.A. The aim of STRIDE is to evaluate the effectiveness of evidence-based strategies to reduce serious fall-related injuries by implementing individually tailored interventions to prevent fall-related injuries. The STRIDE Study partners with patients and caregivers, to ensure the patient voice is heard in all aspects of the Study.
