  • Cornell Roybal Center Aging ePainCare Consensus Conference
    TRIPLL has formed The Cornell International ePainCare Collaboration, an international collaborative made up of a wide range researchers interested and/or working in the areas of mobile health, technology, pain and/or aging. The mission of this collaboration is to expand existing, and facilitate new programs of basic and applied research, by evaluating the role of electronic and mobile technologies in the management of later life pain (ePainCare). TRIPLL will host an international conference on April 7th, 2017, in New York City, with broad multidisciplinary stakeholder representation – behavioral/social scientists, health care practitioners, older adults (65 years and older) living with pain, professionals working in policy-related roles, and technology stakeholders – to review existing knowledge gaps and establish a research agenda. This conference is supported by the National Institute On Aging of the National Institutes of Health (R13AG053044). A consensus conference model, developed by members of the investigative/collaborative team, will be used. This model has been used successfully to generate research agendas on a variety of topics, including fall prevention, elder mistreatment, and environmental sustainability and health. This method was recently used to bring together practitioners, researchers and policy experts to generate a palliative care research agenda. The corresponding results have been recently published in the American Journal of Public Health. This approach is particularly appealing, because of its focus on systematically engaging relevant stakeholder groups in a consensus process that leads to useful and actionable research recommendations. After the April 7th conference, a peer-reviewed publication summarizing the knowledge gaps and corresponding research agenda established by conference attendees will be disseminated. TRIPLL will also develop and maintain an online network to support collaboration among individuals and groups interested in conducting research in this area. For any questions regarding the meeting and/or to be added to our online network, please contact the Jacquie Howard at jah3011@med.cornell.edu or at (212) 746-1801. We will follow-up with you as soon as possible.

  • Webinar: Racial & Ethnic Pain-Related Disparities: Provider & Contextual Factors & Potential Solutions.
    Presenter: Adam Hirsh, PhD, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis Overview: Pain-related disparities for racial/ethnic minority groups exist at multiple stages of the pain care continuum. Dr. Hirsh’s presentation will focus on the provider and contextual factors that contribute to these disparities. He will highlight theoretical and empirical findings indicating how these factors influence pain care and discuss key questions for future research. Dr. Hirsh will also discuss two novel interventions that use virtual human technology to reduce disparities and improve care for low-income minority patients with chronic pain.

  • Webinar: The impact of expectations & persistence on achieving long term goals
    Presenter: Joseph Kable, PhD, University of Pennsylvania Overview: People often choose to pursue long-term, future goals over short-term immediate ones, then abandon this pursuit before achieving that future goal. Dr. Kable will discuss how this failure to persist toward delayed goals can arise from ones expectations regarding uncertain future goals. He will talk about his work showing the critical role of uncertainty in persistence towards future outcomes. Then he will examine how different forms of uncertainty are encoded in the brain and affect other neural representations during voluntary persistence. Click here to register for this free webinar.
