Medication Assistance by Intergenerational Caregivers of Older Adults: Online Health Education Approaches

Website: http://www.sandwichgenerationdiner.com
Principal Investigator: Epstein, Joel
Funder: Express Scripts

In this online health education project, we aimed to: (1) increase reported knowledge and use of effective medication management strategies by women caring for an older relative; (2) decrease medication-related caregiving hassles; and (3) decrease rates of adverse medication-related events for care recipients.

Joel Epstein wrote video scripts based on the content developed by Ann Steffen from UMSL’s Department of Psychological Sciences. MIMH’s video production team filmed the vignettes at St. Louis’ Southwest Diner.
