Presentation Materials Library: Inclusion of Older Adults in Clinical and Translational Research

This toolkit comprises a set of power point slide sets (modules) intended to serve as a resource for persons delivering presentations aiming to heighten and facilitate older adult inclusion in clinical and translational research. Examples of settings for use include: (a) workshops aiming to provide basic training in older adult inclusion at scientific meetings; (b) training sessions at one’s institution or in one’s research network; (c) presentations designed to advocate or facilitate development of policies or resources to promote older adult inclusion at an institution, agency or a research effort. Modules are fully downloadable so that persons preparing presentations may mix and match slides from the slide sets provided herein.

Please note, the submitter suggests the order of the trainings to be important. The first two modules appearing below form the first and second presentations in the set.
