Welcome to Partnership to Improve Care and Translate Evidence for Seniors (PICANTES)
PICANTES is an Academic-Nursing Home Partnership:
This partnership involves an interdisciplinary group of 17 faculty at the University of Pennsylvania Schools of Medicine and Nursing, the Pennsylvania State University – College of Nursing, the University of Maryland – Baltimore School of Nursing, and the US Department of Veterans Affairs.
Our goal is to catalyze rigorous clinical, health service, and policy-relevant research to improve the quality of care and outcomes for persons receiving services and care in nursing home settings.
Currently, our membership includes over 45 nursing facilities across Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, and Delaware.
The PICANTES Network is supported by an NIA grant awarded to the Population Aging Research Center (PARC) at the University of Pennsylvania.
