ABSTRACT

The pandemics of COVID-19 and systemic racism highlighted health inequities that have existed for decades among Black communities. Nurses are positioned to address these health inequities through innovative ideas and research. More specifically, Black nurses, because of their shared lived experience, understand sociostructural factors underpinning health inequities and how to best engage with Black communities. However, only 8% of Black nurses make up the overall nursing workforce and far fewer are nurse scientists. Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) can offer critically important options for success in addressing the dearth of Black nurse scientists working across sectors and contributing to rich academic milieu, informing innovative national policy, and creating impactful practice. We discuss challenges and strategies to promoting research careers at HBCUs to attract Black nurse scientists as the next leaders in health inequities research.

ABSTRACT

Age-friendly cities optimize opportunities for health, participation, and security to enhance quality of life as people age. The Age-Friendly Cities framework evaluates eight evidence-based domains, including: outdoor spaces and buildings; transportation; housing; social participation; respect and social inclusion; civic participation and employment; communication and information; and community support and health services. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted each of these domains, necessitating reconsideration of opportunities to promote safety, wellness, and empowerment for older adults and persons with disabilities in this new reality. This qualitative descriptive study provides perspectives of gerontologists, senior service providers, and diverse older adults. Participants identified emerging issues and concerns related to the eight age-friendly domains, as well as highlighted best practices and potential solutions. The findings provide direction for gerontological nurses in practice and research who aim to address social determinants of health while promoting aging in place for older adults.

ABSTRACT

This article reviews recent federal and state policy changes in response to the COVID-19 pandemic that affect health care and quality of life for older adults. Specific regulations and guidelines issued at the state and federal level have increased access and provided additional funding for essential services and supports. Many of these changes are temporary and have the potential to improve care beyond the immediate crisis. This period of greater flexibility offers the opportunity to accrue evidence on quality and access to influence sustained change. [Journal of Gerontological Nursing, 46(6), 19-23.].
