About the speaker

Beth Prusaczyk, PhD, MSW
Instructor, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis

Dr. Prusaczyk’s research focuses on how to effectively implement evidence-based practices and policies that improve the health of older adults, especially those discharging from the hospital. She is interested in how policies can influence the adoption of existing practices that impact older adults’ healthcare and how researchers can more effectively disseminate research findings to policymakers. She has expertise in implementation science frameworks, strategies, measures, and outcomes. She also uses social network analysis to understand healthcare delivery and processes. She has recently published articles on the transitional care for older adults with dementia, rural healthcare delivery, de-implementation, and the ethics of conducting research with cognitively impaired older adults.
