Medication Self-Management in African American Older Women
Julie Ellis, PhD, RN, GCNS-BC, University of Wisconsin Milwaukee
Barbara Nichols, RN, DS-HC
This study will examine the relative contribution of contextual and process factors that are pertinent to older adult African American women and medication self-management behaviors (MSMB). The focus is to better understand correlates of key variables potentially amenable to intervention. Findings will inform the development of culturally appropriate medication self-management interventions that are consistent with precision medicine approaches and take individual variability into account to improve health outcomes.
