The Geriatric Emergency care Applied Research Network 2.0 (GEAR 2.0) aims to establish infrastructure to support collaborative, interdisciplinary research to improve care for older adults with dementia. Learn more below about dementia, and the implications on emergency department (ED) care for older adults, as well our specific Work Group topics designed to address these implications.
Work Group Topics
All GEAR 2.0 work groups will use the PICO approach to develop key questions and identify research gaps for their topic area. The work groups will conduct literature searches, summarize findings, extract conclusions and present findings at the consensus conference.
